Joe Biden Moving Pieces Into Place for 2020

Joe Biden is done being coy about his presidential ambitions.

This week he officially opened the office for his Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, just down the road from the US Capitol.

And it’s admittedly a front for his not-so-clandestine campaign headquarters.

According to anonymous advisers, five key officials were invited to a meeting at the office to discuss Biden’s plans for 2020.

In which Biden made it clear that he’s making serious moves to be positioned for a run against President Trump.

The big issue is his age. At 78, he’d be the oldest president ever elected…by far.

That might be why advisers discussed a promise to serve only one term then hand the ball over to his VP.

We’ll see.

Here’s more from Yahoo…

Former Vice President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a potential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides.

Huddled in his newly opened office steps from the U.S. Capitol, Biden began a planning meeting for his new diplomacy center by addressing the elephant in the room. He said he was keeping his 2020 options open, considering it a real possibility. He insisted he had made no decision, and didn’t need to yet, according to five people who either attended the meeting or were briefed on it by those who did.

Biden also expressed interest in bringing those in the room onto his team if he decides to launch a campaign. At the same time, he gave them an out: There would be no hard feelings if they decided they were content in their current roles outside of government, said the people, who demanded anonymity to discuss a private meeting.
