It seems that he’s ready to do it again?
Geoffrey Skelley over at FiveThirtyEight asks the question though…..
Would It Be Weird If Biden Didn’t Run?
Biden’s extended waffling about whether to enter the race is reminiscent of Mario Cuomo, the New York governor who considered a presidential run in 1992 but didn’t end up getting in the race — Cuomo’s indecision earned him the nickname “Hamlet on the Hudson.” Although Biden has run twice, he has flirted with and decided against running for president in several other cycles, including 1984, 2004 and 2016. As his 2020 deliberations continue, Biden risks losing out on potential staff members as top operatives are hired by other campaigns, and he could lose ground with his likely supporters as they are courted by candidates already officially in the race, both of which could push him toward a “no” decision.
It’s harder to say what Biden and Ted Kennedy have in common, except that both have been major names in Democratic politics. Unlike Biden, Kennedy had a serious scandal hanging over his head when he looked at running in the 1970s, and while Biden has had some awkward moments over the years, nothing comes close to the Chappaquiddick incident.
Will Biden run? For the past week, the betting market PredictIt has given him about a 70 to 80 percent chance of entering the race, but given that other early front-runners haven’t always thrown their hat in the ring, it shouldn’t come as a shock if Biden also opts to sit things out in 2020…..
My view is that Biden IS gonna run….
But he needs to jump in sooner , not later as Kamala Harris WILL eclipse his number #1 poll approval if he doesn’t commit to the run…..
