This regret is going to turn into a campaign. I didn’t buy it when he didn’t get in and I think this is just another ploy to keep his name out there.
Hillary is on the verge of going to jail for numerous scandals. Biden will swoop in and save the day for liberals.

Joe will come in and appear to be the savior of the party. He will have their thanks and sympathy. It is actually a good plan. But one that we can be aware of and prepared for.
