Reports say that Vice President Joe Biden will wait to make his final decision on whether to run for President after Hillary Clinton faces the House Select Committee On Benghazi chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy.
Clinton faces Gowdy and Co. on October 22nd, and Biden will evidently announce his intentions until after the hearing.
According to Politico:
“Biden and his advisers knew that waiting until October to make a decision was a gamble: Would Clinton’s late-summer tailspin continue? Would she fumble and stumble through the first debate? And most importantly, would the primary race take off without him?
Now, Biden’s orbit has put out word that he’s going to take another week to make a decision — right up against Clinton’s appearance before the Select Committee on Benghazi that once seemed like it could become an embarrassing inquisition, but that she’s now already framing a tedious partisan fishing expedition.
While Biden may have seen four Clinton opponents without his debating chops struggle to distinguish themselves next to her on Tuesday night, he also saw that he was not, at least to the people on stage, the looming presence that some thought he’d be. Neither was she the wounded shark that Biden backers hoped might leave Democrats crying out for a savior.”
