According to a new poll from CBS News and the New York Times, eight out of ten Democratic voters would like to see Hillary Clinton run for president in 2016, nearly double the enthusiasm shown for any other candidate from either of the United States’ two primary political parties. Several potential candidates found support among just over 40 percent of their party, including Vice President Joe Biden and former Florida governor Jeb Bush; however, none of the figures in the poll came close to matching the approval of the former Secretary of State.

Biden insults the airports of third-world countries by saying LaGuardia Airport is on their level. (Side note: Whether or not this is true or pure hyperbole on Uncle Joe’s part, he’s probably in a position to talk, being a vice president who travels a lot due to the job.)

I covered the Clinton administration for seven years. I don’t remember ever seen details of how much it costs to spend a night or two in Paris or London or any other place for that matter.
CNN anchor Wolf Blizter • Discussing his surprise at a recent report detailing the costs of Vice President Joe Biden’s recent trip to Europe. The price tag was hefty — in Paris, for example, he spent nearly $500,000 on a single-night hotel stay. According to the State Department, the costs are actually normal, largely because, for security reasons, the administration often has to book out full hotels for the vice president to stay in. While the costs struck Bush Administration officials as high, they said they understood why they might fly so sky-high. source

We’ll take steps to find out who did this, and if they’re within the boundaries of the United States, we’ll prosecute them.
L.A. Police Chief Charlie Beck • Discussing the Russian website that leaked much of his financial info, along with the alleged personal info of a number of major celebrities, such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Beyonce and Jay-Z. Why he was included in such company, he’s not 100 percent sure, but he assumes his association with the Christopher Dorner case played a role.

I have a soft spot for Joe Biden,” he said. “I like him. But he’s dumb as an ashtray.
Exclusive Excerpt: Roger Ailes Off Camera, Vanity Fair (via brooklynmutt)

In which Ailes simultaneously plays into his own image and Biden’s Onion-bestowed image.

Finally, Congress will reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act: The legislation, dreamed up and championed in 1994 by then-Senator Joe Biden, died in the House last year when the Republican leadership refused to put it to a vote (it had already passed the Senate). The problem, if you want to put it that way, was that Senate Democrats had modified the legislation to add protections for LGBT women, Native Americans and undocumented immigrants. John Boehner and company objected to these additions so strongly that they refused to let the House vote on it, despite indications that it would pass if they did. Today, Boehner relented, and will allow the House to vote on the bill. It’s expected to pass and will likely land on the President’s desk at the end of the week. (Photo: Getty images) source

Biden’s already got his swag on and Boehner’s face matches his tie. Here we go.

Not sure we’ve ever seen Joe Biden rocking a purple tie and glasses before, but for our money, he should do so more often.

With the recent tragedy on everyone’s minds, some people are looking for a cause and culprit other than the shooter. Unfortunately some are blaming media, including video games, for violent behavior in individuals. We know this isn’t the case; banning or regulating media content even more won’t solve the issue.
Entertainment Consumers Association president Jennifer Mercurio •  Speaking on the recent meeting between Vice President Joe Biden and executives of major video game companies, as part of Biden’s task force on curbing gun violence. The video game industry, which drew blame from NRA chief Wayne LaPierre during his controversial post-Sandy Hook press conference, has pushed back rather firmly against the notion that their products bear any responsibility to America’s gun violence epidemic. source

There is a surprising, so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. Not just close the gun show loophole, but total, universal background checks, including private sales.
Joe Biden re: the proposals being considered by his gun control task force. John Hickenlooper, the Democratic Governor of Colorado, echoed this same sentiment today. In addition, Biden said that he’s “never quite heard as much talk about the need to do something about high-capacity magazines as I’ve heard spontaneously from every group that we’ve met with so far,” and said that the president has given him until Tuesday to present a set of recommendations as to how best prevent future incidents like the one in Newtown. source
