I'd like to be a fly on the wall when Biden goes to ask Obama for an endorsement.

Would Obama do it for the primaries? Or say he's waiting till after the convention?

1. If Obama follows the practice of previous presidents he won't endorse before the convention.

22. Joe Donnelly

 

Pretty sure this picture is at Michiana Airport in South Bend. Pete was invited to ride with Obama and Joe to Elkhart for a for speech at Concord HS. Joe was seated next to Barack and Pete rode backwards in the seat facing Barack on the 30 minute ride. He tells about it in his book. He wrote about facing Obama on the ride and looking directly into Obama's eyes and his great big smile. After chatting a bit, and Pete telling him his story, Barack asked "How old did you say you are?" Pete wrote that for more than a moment he forgot!

13. Biden would never ask. I'm sure he respects the President enough to not do that...

 

And he probably knows the President isn't going to publicly endorse a candidate.

18. Well for sure he won't endorse Sen. Sanders after the way he called for a primary in 12.

 

We would have lost the presidency had that happened. Biden will serve Obama's 3rd term and rebuild the blue wall. I doubt Pres, Obama will endorse in a primary...he is a statesman.

23. Obama might deviate from the tradition this time

 

because he is not the sitting POTUS and his jumping in late after the damage was done hurt the party and the country.
