    Biden in 2020? Allies Say He Sees Himself as Democrats’ Best Hope

    Biden in 2020? Allies Say He Sees Himself as Democrats’ Best Hope

    Please do run Crazy Uncle Joe!

    Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is in the final stages of deciding whether to run for president and has told allies he is skeptical the other Democrats eyeing the White House can defeat President Trump, an assessment that foreshadows a clash between the veteran Washington insider and the more liberal and fresh-faced contenders for the party’s 2020 nomination.

    Many Democratic voters, and nearly all major Democratic donors, are keenly interested in Mr. Biden’s plans because of their consuming focus on finding a candidate who can beat a president they believe represents a threat to American democracy. But there is also a rising demand in the party for a more progressive standard-bearer who reflects the increasingly diverse Democratic coalition.

    Mr. Biden would instantly be the early front-runner if he ran, but he would have to bridge divides in a primary that would test whether Democrats are willing to embrace a moderate white man in his 70s if they view him as the best bet to oust Mr. Trump.

    “He has the best chance of beating Trump, hands down,” said Senator Tom Carper of Delaware, Mr. Biden’s longtime friend and former colleague. “On a scale of one to 10, that’s probably about a 12 for us.”

    There are a number of good potential candidates. It's early. I'd like to see Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii in the mix as a P or VP. John Hickenlooper could also be a good potential candidate.

    I also believe that Romney will make a run for the Republican nomination - whether or not Trump is able to complete his first term. I think Romney sees this as his best last chance.
