Biden sets new deadline for presidential bid

Vice President Joe Biden made a decision this week to announce a decision next week about whether or not he’ll run for president. Biden’s deadline for making a decision has shifted and changed several times already, so it remains to be seen if this one is real. Biden did unequivocally say he would not participate in the democrat’s first presidential debate on CNN Tuesday, Oct. 13.

A new poll this week shows self avowed Socialist Bernie Sanders’ support collapsing nationally to 18 percent, down from 35 percent two weeks ago. The IBD/TIPP poll also shows billionaire Donald Trump slipping to second place with 17 percent while neurosurgeon Ben Carson jumps into the top spot with 24 percent. Two weeks ago Trump was at 26 percent nationally.

“The IBD/TIPP Poll has a proven track record for accuracy, based on its performance in the past three presidential elections,” states Investor's Business Daily. “In a comparison of the final results of various pollsters for the 2004 and 2008 elections, IBD/TIPP was the most accurate.” This is their first poll of the primary season.

Meanwhile Hillary Clinton gave a rousing speech on Saturday to the Human Rights Campaign outlining her commitment to the LGBT community.

Later that night Clinton appeared on the season premier on Saturday Night Live where she played a bartender comforting Hillary Clinton (Kate McKinnon). In the clip McKinnon takes her to task for not supporting same-sex marriage earlier.

Biden also gave a speech to HRC on the same day with a tone and rhetoric similar to Clinton’s.

During that speech Biden referenced a story from when he was 17 years old growing up in Wilmington, Delaware. As he was riding in the car with his father the two of them saw two men in business suits on the street kiss each other on their way to work. That would have been in 1959 — 10 years before the Stonewall Riots.

As Biden turned to his dad, his dad said “Joey, they’re in love with each other, it’s that simple.”

That story sounds strikingly similar to one Nick Jonas told of his dad in July.

“One of my friends who was one of the guys in the show — his name was Mark — was leaving the theater one day and I saw him leave with his partner. I looked at my dad and said, ‘Oh, that’s different,’ and he was like, ‘It’s all love, it’s all the same,’ and it just connected with me immediately. I came from a religious background and my dad is actually a pastor. But he is an incredible man with an amazing open mind and heart.”
