Biden weighs in on the Democratic debate

Still contemplating a bid for the Oval Office, Vice President Joe Biden told reporters Wednesday he is “proud” of the Democratic candidates’ performance at Tuesday evening’s debate in Las Vegas.

The vice president greeted reporters after delivering remarks on infrastructure investment in Washington D.C.

“I thought every one of those folks did well, thanks,” said Biden after his address.    

When asked by reporters about his “decision and timing” for an announcement on his White House intentions, Biden briskly left the room without comment.

Time is running out, Biden must decide by the end of October.

Originally buoyed by Hillary Clinton’s shadowy e-mail practices, troubles at the Clinton Foundation and the Clintons’ notorious lack of ethics, Biden witnessed his chances dwindle Tuesday as Hillary Clinton turned out a strong performance in the debate.

Waiting, what was once regarded as a clever tactical maneuver, may prove Biden’s undoing:  By frustrating her four debate opponents, two of whom are virtual unknowns, Hillary Clinton may have nudged Biden out of the race.

By all accounts, Biden’s family is firmly behind a run for the Oval Office and financial backers remain steadfast in their support for a Biden campaign.
