Biden to be keynote speaker at House Democratic retreat

Source: Politico

Former Vice President Joe Biden will headline the House Democratic retreat next week, sources tell POLITICO exclusively.

Biden will be the keynote speaker at the three-day confab, which kicks off in Cambridge, Maryland, on Wednesday, Feb. 7. Biden will address the 194-member caucus on Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the planning.

Government funding runs out Feb. 8 in the middle of the annual event but Democrats are still expected to attend if the House and Senate can pass another short-term funding bill early next week.

Biden, 75, has not ruled out challenging President Donald Trump for the White House in 2020 and continues to poll well among Democratic voters as a potential presidential candidate.

2. The only reason Biden is polling well this early is because of name recognition. In my view if

Democrats are wise when we pick our nominee, it won't be anyone that ran in 2016. Joe Biden isn't in that category, but in several other areas he might not be the ideal candidate.

The most important focus for Democrats right now should be 2018
