Biden Prepares for 2016

A longtime adviser to Vice President Joe Biden "sketched out a surprisingly detailed strategy" to Noam Scheiber for a Biden presidential bid in 2016.

"First, Biden is going to extravagant lengths to ensure his boss's reelection while putting his own ambitions on hold, in the hope that the Obama brass will reward this selflessness when the time comes... Biden's inner circle believes the strategy will position him to inherit key players on President Obama's political team."

"Step two of the master plan is leveraging Biden's deep ties to traditional Democratic constituencies, such as labor, trial lawyers, and African American, Jewish, and gay groups and donors, the last of which were thrilled by his plug for same-sex marriage this May."
