Joe Biden summoned more than 200 Democratic insiders to the vice presidential residence Sunday night to chat about the 2012 triumph — but many walked away convinced his rising 2016 ambitions were the real intent of the long, intimate night.

Biden, according to a number of advisers and Democrats who have spoken to him in recent months, wants to run, or at least be well positioned to run, if and when he decides to pull the trigger.

Biden the Next Gerald Ford

Biden will become President once Obama is impeached. The economy will be in the tank and make it impossible for him to be reelected in 2016.
What could cause Obama to be impeached?

Sandy Hook.

Not Biden, please, not Biden

Even Hilary would be better.
