This is NOT a good look in my mind…..
And it appears he will NOT do this….
Such a move while appealing to the media ?
Would politically kneecap him from the day he was sworn in….
He’s in first place , age known and all….
Leave that alone and run….
Sanders is a year older then him at 78 ….Trump is 73….Warren is 70…..Pelosi is 79….
Just run Joe….
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s top advisers and prominent Democrats outside the Biden campaign have recently revived a long-running debate whether Biden should publicly pledge to serve only one term, with Biden himself signaling to aides that he would serve only a single term.
While the option of making a public pledge remains available, Biden has for now settled on an alternative strategy: quietly indicating that he will almost certainly not run for a second term while declining to make a promise that he and his advisers fear could turn him into a lame duck and sap him of his political capital.
…for now, Biden remains the favorite, a fact that even the online betting markets, which were wildly bullish on Warren from September through November, now acknowledge.
And so the question of how to address Biden’s age, which may be the candidate’s most significant liability, and the related question of the lack of enthusiasm for Biden’s candidacy among the activist wing of their party, has once again seized Democrats.
A top Biden adviser said Biden ruled out a one-term pledge when the issue was raised before he even entered the race. “He said it was a nonstarter,” the adviser said, adding that Biden believed it was a “gimmick.”
But Biden’s public statements on running for reelection have shifted over the course of the campaign.
In April, when asked whether he would serve just one term, Biden responded, “No.” More recently, Biden has been ambiguous. In October, The Associated Press reported that when “asked whether he would pledge to only serve one term if elected, Biden said he wouldn’t make such a promise but noted he wasn’t necessarily committed to seeking a second term if elected in 2020.”…
It would appear some in the media are so opposed to Biden that they would raise this issue ONLY with him and skip over the others who are close , or even older then him….
Joe Biden told Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) that he would “serve two terms, if necessary” in response to a Politico article suggesting the former vice president signaled he would only serve a single term if elected president, CNN’s Ali Zaslav said Wednesday….
Responding to Politico’s reporting, Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager tweeted Wednesday: “Lots of chatter out there on this so just want to be crystal clear: this is not a conversation our campaign is having and not something VP Biden is thinking about.”
