Obama’s vice president Joe Biden has served the president loyally for most of the two terms now and will probably follow his boss into retirement or some quieter form of politics, as he has no shot at the top job. Right?
Not so fast. Biden hasn’t completely clarified on whether or not he will seek first the Democratic Party nomination for the presidency in 2016 and whether he is willing to run for president in the first place, as he is still focused on doing his job as Vice President.
