The 2012 election is finally coming to a close. So why not talk about 2016?! Vice President Joe Biden has dropped a few hints this week that he’ll be seeking the presidency in 2016.
Today, Biden went to the polling station in Wilmington, Delaware, to cast his vote for the 2012 election. When the 69-year-old politician emerged from the school he was asked if it this was the last time he’ll see his name on a ballot.
Biden said: “No, I don’t think so.”
But Biden’s chances of winning the presidency in 2016 may be pretty slim. The Vice President will be 73-years-old in 2016. The United States has never put a man in his 70s into office. The oldest president to be elected was Ronald Reagan. Reagan won the presidency in 1980 when he was 69-years-old.
Biden may be toying with the idea of running in 2016 but right now he’s concentrating on today’s election. Biden said that he’s “feeling pretty good” about tonight’s vote.
“I hope everyone exercises their right to vote. It’s a great honor. For anyone standing in long lines today I urge them to stand in line as long as it takes.”
