The Future for Joe Biden

As Vice President, Dick Cheney was an anomaly. You knew as soon as he took office that (unfortunately) he had no designs on the top spot. Obviously, the same cannot be said of his replacement so…what becomes of Joe Biden in 4 years? Presumably, he can’t stay on the ticket (unless the Constitution has been changed to allow Sen. Obama unlimited terms). Should then-President Obama win a second term, his vice-president becomes the probable heir-apparent for the party’s nomination. While I think many on my side of the fence would enjoy facing such a worthy opponent, I’ve got to believe Joe Biden as a ticket-headliner would still strike fear in most Democrats’ hearts.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s second term as Senator will be expiring…

Side Note: A little Identity Politics humor…

“Say it aloud! There was a time when such a thing would be unthinkable, laughable. But, there it is — Joe Biden, a white American male, is our new vice president. As a white American male, my chest is filled with pride.” Yes, He Can! by Dave Konig on NRO
