Remain Calm, But Joe Biden Casually Mentioned He Might Run For Prez In 2020

With the days ticking down to Donald Trump‘s inauguration on January 20th and thus his official confirmation as the 45th President of the United States, the DNC is already trying to figure out just what in the blue hell to do with its next four years.
If you’re Joe Biden you’d be absolutely forgiven if you’ve settled on “fuck everything else off and go sip gin on the beach” as the primary option for the post-Obama years.
But as the Democrats scramble to figure out a) what the shit just happened, and b) what exactly this “middle America” is that everyone keeps yammering on about, a candidate for the 2020 US Presidential election might have already put their hand up.
And folks, it’s Grandpa Joe.
The soon-to-be former Vice President (*SOBS*) and Barry’s BFF paid a visit to the US Senate earlier today, where he casually let slip to media that he’s kinda, sorta, possibly, maybe, probably thinking about throwing his hat in the ring to contest the 2020 Democratic nomination.
A half-joking exchange quickly turned into this could actually be happening when Biden spoke with waiting press outside the Senate chamber.

“For President. And also, what the hell man, anyway.”

My godd.

The far-more-serious little titbit at the end of the chat with press is what should really get your blue-blood running.
“I’m not committing to not to run. I’m not committed to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.”

Obviously there’s a few hurdles standing in the way of a potential Biden run at the Presidency. 4 years is a hell of a long time in politics, particularly in the modern world. And the Democrats might find that the best option to actually defeat Trump might be someone who runs against the establishment themselves. Fight fire with fire, and all that.

Also there’s the tiny little problem of the fact that Biden, if elected, would be a whopping 78 years old by the time he took office.
Not only would he supersede Trump as the oldest person ever elected President by a staggering 8 whole years, he’d be three full years older than Bernie Sanders was in even attempting to run for President.
So while having the most Grandaddy US President of all time might seem like a nice idea in theory, for the time being it’s probably better to stick to those utterly fucking wonderful Barack/Joe memes.
You can dream, though. You can always dream.
