Biden might get bored after handing over the reins to President Harris in 2029 and decide to run for another Senate term. He'd still be younger than Chuck Grassley.

Hmmm. Whose side is Axelrod on? Support the Dem candidate for God's sake. brush May 9 #1
Axelrod is a political strategist brooklynite May 9 #5
