Decision Made.

From Biography.com


Well, Vice President Biden has decided NOT to put his hat in the ring.

     I think it's a good decision.  Not that it matters to any a penny as to what I think but just sayin'.  Pretty sure that we'll be seeing lots of coverage on this over the next few days.  Given that he still has more than a year in his current role as vice president, it's not like he'll be able to totally kick back and relax, but I would think that he's likely to be in a hell of a more enjoyable position than any of the candidates running for the presidency, in many ways in the months to come.

     There won't be any more speculation on "Will he?" or "Won't he?"  He can retain more than a shred of privacy.  He can spend time with loved ones and only loved ones if he chooses.  He can say whatever he damn well pleases, and nobody will seek out hidden meanings.  He won't have things that happened eons ago, drudged up, and twisted for political means.  If he says the wrong thing, it won't be news.  He'll be allowed to be human.


     And although he won't be a candidate, he's professed that he will not be silent.

Think he could very well be one of, if not THE HAND, that rocks the cradle.

     Right now, I am kind of surprised that there's not more ado about the decision.  Then again, since he's not running, nothing really is that different from yesterday.

      Still, the Republican front runner, Donald Trump is pleased with the decision.  He tweeted that he'd rather run against Hillary because he doesn't see her as much of a threat.  You can look it up.  I don't follow Donald Trump on Twitter, because I don't want it to be mistaken for admiration.

Goes to prove even without Joe, there's still plenty of fun to be had.

     I think it's interesting that most seem to think that it's Hillary that is most affected by the VP Biden's decision.   And that if he had decided to run, it would have been Hillary that would have taken the worst hit.   First, we'll never know for sure; but if you consider that Hillary has been around for as long and has the same recognition as VP Biden, The actual President, and the Donald;  then perhaps if the VP had decided to run, I think there are others, that would have been more likely to have fallen by the wayside.  Just a hunch.

     But come on, pretty safe bet that with Donald as the Front Runner of the GOP, the Benghazi hearings, the Speaker of House debacle, and everything else going on in DC, much less the world;  it's shaping up to be a crazy end of 2015.

And you know, 2016 won't be dull.
