VACATIONING VICE PRESIDENT PUTS OUT FEELERS AS HILLARY CLINTON CRUMBLES
|| By FITSNEWS || We knew U.S. president Barack Obama was taking a break from “leading” America this month (thank God), but did you know his second-in-command – vice president Joe Biden – was also vacationing?
Yup. Well, sort of.
Biden is in sunny South Carolina (Kiawah Island, to be precise), but he’s not spending all of his time soaking up the sun. According to The Wall Street Journal, Biden is “using part of his vacation in South Carolina this week to sound out friends and family about a presidential bid.”
NBC News published a similar report, quoting “a longtime Democratic operative and a source close to Biden” who received a call from the vice president about a possible presidential run.
That source told the network Biden plans to make up his mind by August or September.
Clearly the scandals surrounding Hillary Clinton – viewed for months as the inevitable Democratic nominee as well as the frontrunner to win the White House in 2016 – are taking a much bigger toll than anyone previously imagined. In fact just this week, a shocking new poll in New Hampshire revealed Clinton trailing independent socialist Bernie Sanders among Granite State Democrats.
Count on the Biden speculation to fuel yet another round of stories about how much trouble Clinton is conceivably in … giving another boost to Sanders. In fact the U.S. Senator from Vermont’s insurgent candidacy – which is drawing huge crowds on the campaign trail – would benefit tremendously from Biden’s entry in the race as the Democratic establishment vote would be split.
