President Obama's right hand man shocks reporters by suggesting a White House bid in the near future.
President Obama isn’t legally able to seek a third term like so many had hoped, but it looks like the next best thing may be just around the corner.
Supporters, political pundits and even fellow politicians have been questioning whether or not Vice President Joe Biden would throw his well-qualified hat in the ring to run for President and on Monday night, he gave them an answer.
Following a senate session on Monday, CNN jokingly posed the question to Biden of whether or not he planned to run for office again in the future. “Yeah, I am. I’m going to run in 2020,” Biden said. When asked exactly what office he’d go after, President Obama’s right hand man all but sealed the deal. “For president. What the hell, man.”

Reporters also made sure to let Biden know that his surprising comments would be quoted in the news, to which he replied, “That’s okay.”
Along with First Lady Michelle Obama and others who were seemingly uninterested in a future White House bid, Biden has shot down any rumors of a presidential run in the past. However, it looks like those days are long gone.
