While Hillary Clinton is distracted by the sour socialist breath of Bernie Sanders getting closer to her neck, Crazy Joe the Wonder Veep is sneaking around talking to some of her big-money people.
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has secretly met with Robert Wolf, a former UBS executive and major fundraiser for President Barack Obama, Bloomberg reported on Monday, one of the strongest indications yet that he is seriously considering a 2016 presidential bid.
Biden has been evaluating whether to challenge former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the current front-runner for the nomination to represent the Democratic Party in the November 2016 presidential race.
Wolf told Bloomberg he was supporting Clinton but said he met with Biden for more than 90 minutes during the vice president’s trip to New York City last week.
Biden won’t enter this race unless he believes Mrs. Bill’s chances are fatally wounded and her big-money people will flee in droves to him. In the 2008 election, we saw just how little remorse people have when abandoning the sinking ship Hillary. The big-money people certainly don’t want to throw in with Sanders, whose entire political existence is centered on vilifying people who are financially successful.
While Biden may be a bit of a loon, he’s also been playing the political game decades longer than Hillary, so he’s going about this in a very smart way. If he does decide to step into the race, he’ll make sure his foot lands on the throat of Hillary’s campaign.
