It's kinda cute, but a little sad. And a lot delusional…
Appearing at an eatery in Florida on Wednesday, Biden was chatting by phone with a Republican voter when the vice president half-jokingly made his intentions known about a possible run for the White House.
“Look, I’m not trying to talk you into voting for me, I just wanted to say hi to you. And after it's all over, when your insurance rates go down, then you’ll vote for me in 2016. I’ll talk to you later,” Biden said, according a pool reporter traveling with the vice president.
Listen, Joe Biden. I say this with the greatest amount of respect for your career and your office possible… I say this with a great deal of affection: You are not going to be the Democratic nominee in 2016.
You have so far done a perfectly decent job as the Vice President in that you have yet to set the West Wing of the White House on fire, you stepped up and laughed at the right moments during your V.P. debate, and you only got caught on mic saying "fuck" once. But, really, I am pretty confident that the Democratic Party is not likely to press its luck here.
Because all of us know — you as well as anybody — it's only a matter of time before your balls fall out of pants. And nobody is risk you being the nominee when that happens.
