Biden: his time?

Emily ponders the possibility of a Joe Biden Presidential campaign in 2016:

I would normally say “no, oh, please, God, no,” but the GOP have yet to debut a leading candidate with (1) any chance of winning and (2) any chance of making it through the election process without completely embarrassing the party, the party’s history and all party progeny through time immemorial. Granted, Ol’ Uncle Joe is an original drafter of the PATRIOT ACT and has an unfortunate tendency to say exactly what he’s thinking, but Joe’s good with the ladies, can pass off the subtleties of faux compassion with the best of them, and the Democratic bench isn’t all that deep unless you want Sandra Lee that painfully close to being First Lady … and unless you’ve got your eye on President Debbie Wasserman Schultz, that is.

Perish the thought. Besides, there is an upside:

[L]et’s face it, if Joe were in office, the Presidency would be a hell of a lot more interesting. And you know exactly what I mean: kegs in the China room, official state-sanctioned beer pong tournaments, Presidential Chex Mix and formal events that involve formal leather jackets.

And if it should come down to Joe versus Hillary? I will be observing at a safe distance through heavy lenses.

    Once again, I cite the assertion that the old Chinese saying “May you live in interesting times” is actually a curse.
