Joe Biden Isn’t Sure He Has the “Emotional Fuel” to Run for President

MediaPunch/AP


This is the first hard evidence we have that Joe Biden is seriously thinking about a presidential run:

On Wednesday he made his first public comments on his potential 2016 run — though not intentionally. CNN posted audio recorded during what was supposed to be a private conference call for Democratic National Committee members in which the vice-president confirmed that he’s actively considering entering the campaign….“We’re dealing at home with … whether or not there is the emotional fuel at this time to run,” Biden responded.

I’ve got nothing but sympathy for what Biden is going through right now, but the fact remains: If you’re not sure you have the fuel for a grueling presidential campaign, then you don’t.
