Joe Biden keeps getting in the news lately. First, Donna Brazile says she considered replacing Clinton-Kaine with Biden-Booker after Clinton’s pneumonia spell in September 2016, something that had no unilateral power to do, but hey, if it sells a book and gives her an appearance fee on Fox, all the better. Second, MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews says Biden is running in 2020.
Matthews: “He is running. I know he’s running. I’ve talked to his people. … I’ve talked to his family. […] If he can get past the gaffes and shows a vigor and can create some excitement, he may well be able to beat the age issue. […] The Democrats have got to get back to being the party of regular people: firefighters, waitresses, cops, regular people.” Matthews suggested a ticket with Sen. Kamala Harris of California.
