As a recent Politico feature makes clear, Vice President Joe Biden is still seriously thinking about running for President in 2016. While I’m a strong supporter of primaries because I believe they give the party an chance to debate what they stand for, I fail to see what is either the policy or political case for Biden over Hillary Clinton.

While the Healthcare.gov website is now working, it is growing increasingly clear the Obama administration will not hit its goal of having 7 million people sign up on the exchanges this year. Vice President Joe Biden admitted that will likely be unattainable.

Gov. Brian Schweitzer is 58, Gov. Peter Shumlin is 57, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is 56 and Gov. Martin O’Malley is only 51. All of them are young enough they could easily wait to run in 2020, 2024, or even 2030.

As long as Biden is possibly considering a run it at least means activists on the left have a small point of leverage over this lame duck administration.

It is time to take a moment to again reflect on just how much progress has been made on the issue of marriage equality in the last decade.
Back during the 2008 Democratic primary none of the strongest candidates supported same-sex marriage. Now with the recent endorsement of Hillary Clinton, every Democrat that is viewed as a possible top tier candidate in the 2016 Presidential primary has come out in favor of marriage equality.

We all know Vice President Joe Biden as the street smart, wisecracking, blue-collared right hand of President Barack Obama. We all know the well-worn public persona: the dedicated family man who spent four hours a day during his Senate tenure shlepping to and from Wilmington, Delaware to be with his offspring, instead of shacking up with a group of fellow politicos in a deluxe Georgetown brownstone, going home on alternate weekends to gladhand with campaign donors. And yes, we all know Joe Biden as the GILF fantasy of women from Bangor to Bangalore, and probably in Europe, too. He’s approachable, he’s funny, he’s smart, he drives a white Trans Am, and he’s dead sexy. He’s Joe Biden.
But there’s so much we didn’t know about the current Veep…until now.

If Biden is at least exploring the possibility, there are real implications for activists right now.

Vice President Joe Biden is meeting with representatives of the video game industry to talk about gun violence, so I want to take a moment to talk about how incredibly misguided it is to blame video games for the incredible amount of gun violence in this country. It shows how distorted the debate has become in this country that regulating virtual depictions of guns is often more discussed as a solution than regulating the actual guns.
