With Iowa visit, Biden has tongues wagging about 2016 race
Many in Washington believe he will not run if Clinton runs, and she is making a regular series of public appearances that could easily be interpreted as setting the stage for a campaign.
Obama, said Biden, reduced the national debt by $2.5 trillion “and in the process we’ve created 2.5 million new jobs. But folks, there’s a lot more we have to do.”
“It’s always been the story ... of the journey of this country that the American people have been ahead, and I know I’ve been criticized for saying this, but I’ll say it again: That’s what makes America exceptional,” said Biden.
Harkin told reporters last Thursday that Biden could find “fertile ground” in Iowa should he choose to run in 2016, but did not predict whether Clinton or Biden would prevail.
Obama himself refused to be drawn into discussion of his successor in an interview broadcast on Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”
“He says all the right things,” Byrd said of Biden. “Even though he’s getting older, that’s not going to slow him down ... He can handle everything.”
