Biden's Got a Detailed Plan For His 2016 Run For the Presidency

That's adorable.

“Biden has a special call on a lot of people’s loyalties, starting with the president,” says the adviser. “That’s why you’ve got to take him seriously. And he’s serious.”

All of which makes it unsurprising that Biden considers himself, if not the 800-pound gorilla of the 2016 field, then certainly a big-boned primate. “Other than Hillary, he doesn’t consider any of the names lurking beneath the surface as competitors,” says the adviser. But even if we allow that Biden’s chances are far better in 2016 than they were in 2008, does that make them, you know, good?

“I’VE GOT A BETTER SHOT at being president than him,” groused one Obama fund-raiser when I first floated the idea.

But that fundraiser than suggested he'd support Biden. Biden's plan is to be more pro-Obama than Obama himself, and then count on Obama's loyalty and partisan Democrats' loyalty to Obama's chief water-carrier as a justification for his election.

Biden would be 74 on Inauguration Day in 2016. From what I've seen of Old Joe at 70, I can't wait for Joe at 74.
