Joe Biden Would Be Welcomed as a Presidential Candidate

Rumors are still going strong about whether or not Vice President Joe Biden will be pursuing a 2016 presidential nomination. On ABC's "This Week" former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley said "It would be nice to have one more lifelong Democrat in the race." This might have been a slight dig at Hillary Clinton, who was a Republican in her youth and Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is a self-declared democratic socialist.

At the Iowa State Fair last week, O'Malley said "I choose to be a Democrat, not just in presidential years, but in every year of my life." On Sunday, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) told NBC's Chuck Todd ""All I can say is, if I were Hillary, I would say [to Biden], 'Don't jump in.' If I were Joe Biden, I'd probably give it very serious consideration." Brown also predicted that Clinton's email controversy would continue to haunt her, possibly changing her front-runner status.

Brown added "There's always an opening for the outsider." On Saturday, CNN and The New York Times reported that Biden met with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to seek her input regarding a presidential run.
