For a second day this week, news of Vice President Joe Biden’s potential bid for the White House is gaining significant steam.

According to unnamed sources, President Obama has given his second in command his blessing to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination.

Reports point to a lunch meeting on Monday between the two prior to Obama’s departure for Las Vegas in which it is assumed the subject was discussed.

What’s more, White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded to a question from a reporter about a potential endorsement from the president, “I wouldn’t rule it out.”
