Joe Biden Officially Announces 2020 Presidential Run

After months of oscillating speculation, followed by a long ramp up that drew out uncomfortable reassessments of his long public career, former Vice President Joe Biden has announced that he will run for president in 2020.

Biden made the announcement in a video released on Thursday. He's expected to head to Pittsburgh, Pa., for a kickoff event next week, highlighting the focus the latest Democratic candidate places on winning back key states President Trump flipped in 2016.



The 76-year-old former Delaware senator immediately becomes a top contender vying for the Democratic nomination, four years after passing on a bid for the White House in the wake of his son Beau's death. However, he will surely face questions about his age, past positions on policing and actions toward women in the wake of the #MeToo era. Biden is the 20th candidate to enter the Democratic primary race.

3. That was a good video announcement

 

I'll happily vote for Biden if he is our nominee.
( and if he is... I hope Kamala is the VP choice. )

ETA: I donated. I gave money to Kamala and Beto so Joe gets a little too. It's joebiden.com if anyone wants to give a little too.

22. Who cares? That's not his goal.

 

It's not mine, either. Let that 30% or so vote for Trump again. We'll win with the rest.

19. So much to apologize for.

 

He's said:

"I'm sorry" about the Strom Thurman teaming up I did when opposing busing. Strom Thurman?

"I'm sorry" about the crime bill I helped pass.

"I'm sorry" about the Glass-Steagall bill. "Worse thing I ever voted for".

"I'm sorry" about Anita Hill.

"I'm sorry" about how patronizing I was about Obama--saying he was the first African American candidate who was "clean", "articulate" and "good-looking". (Jeeze.)

"I'm sorry" about supporting the Iraq War.

As pointed out on Democracy Now this A.M.--his campaign may turn into the Biden Apology Tour. Not to mention that his son is on the Ukrainian Bank board.
