Anybody think the Biden’s are NOT starting a push for the Democratic Presidential nomination and a run against Donald Trump or whoever is the Republican nominee come 2020?
Former Vice President Joe Biden and former second lady Jill Biden took swipes at President Trump while speaking at the Human Rights Campaign annual dinner Saturday night.

She added that the two wanted to “pick a fight” with bullies, a comment seen as a subtle hint at a possible Biden challenge to Trump in 2020.
Joe Biden also compared Trump to a bully.

Joe Biden is readying his third act.
The former vice president will dust off his fundraising chops for an Oct. 3 fundraiser that will be held in Beverly Hills, just weeks before the country heads to the polls for the midterm elections. The $5,000 per plate event is being organized by Gonring, Spahn and Associates along with Jeffrey Katzenberg. Proceeds will benefit Biden’s PAC American Possibilities, which supports Democratic candidates and causes.
Beyond the money raised, an event of this stature signals to observers that Biden is taking a possible 2020 presidential candidacy very seriously. The 75-year-old would likely enter the presidential race as one of the frontrunners, although he has maintained that any decision about whether he would seek a third presidential bid would come only after the November vote….
