WASHINGTON (AP) — You heard it here first, more than a month before Donald Trump even enters the White House: Joe Biden says he’s running for president in 2020 — maybe.

The departing 74-year-old vice president said it with a slight smile on his face. Given a chance to walk it back, he did — but only a bit.

Biden was chatting with reporters Monday after presiding over the Senate as it cleared away procedural hurdles to a biomedical research bill he’s supporting.

Asked by a reporter whether he would run again, Biden said he would in 2020 — for president.

Asked if he was joking, he said he wasn’t committing to not running.

Biden says, “I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.”

    Let’s bring it back to the now, we’re not in 2020 so why even focus on whose running ? What a waste of reporting. Let’s talk about things going on in the world like the drone strikes taking out innocent people, how oil companies are trying to ruin the last bit of land we have left to protect, and how about joe Biden has a problem with petting younger girls, it was inappropriate and it’s on video!
