Will Vice President Biden get into the presidential race or not? I’m with Greg Sargent: make up your mind, Joe.
Mr. Vice President, enough is enough. The first Democratic presidential debate is in five days. Tell us what you’re going to do already.
… the game Joe Biden is playing now, in holding back on making his decision and telling us what he plans to do, just has to end, and fast. At best it’s becoming a farcical distraction that is beneath him. At worst it’s becoming a serious waste of our time.
The first Democratic debate on October 13th marks the start of a new phase in this campaign. The candidates who are in the race will be coping with a new level of intensity. The last thing they need — the last thing the frontrunner in particular needs, and an enormous amount is riding on her — is the distraction of gaming out strategies and positions in part around what would happen if Biden does enter the race.
He is, at best, running in third place in the Democratic primary polls, he hasn’t raised any money, and all we have to go on is this waiting game.
If I had to bet, I’d say he won’t run. But I’d rather hear it from him.
