This Secret Meeting Just Held in D.C. Could Prove to Be a HUGE Turning Point for 2016

senate-staffer-is-walking-through-the-capitol-hill-lobbyist-revolving-door-right-nowThe intrigue and speculation has just been pumped up regarding the Democrats’ 2016 picture and how it may be totally reshaped in the coming weeks. Vice President Joe Biden reportedly took time out of his vacation at his Delaware home to travel to Washington for a secret, unannounced meeting with Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The two are said to have met over lunch on Saturday at the Naval Observatory, the vice president’s official residence, where they discussed a wide range of issues impacting the 2016 race.

And with Hillary Clinton appearing to sink deeper into the Emailgate scandal with each passing day, the Biden-Warren rendezvous in D.C. is fueling all sorts of chatter about the real purpose of the get-together. Newsmax notes that “political pundits are abuzz with the possibility of a Joe Biden-Elizabeth Warren 2016 ticket.”

While the 72-year-old Biden has been considering whether to toss his hat into the ring for a third presidential run, he hasn’t yet made up his mind — or at least he hasn’t let it be known whether he’ll jump into the race. The Newsmax report on the secret meeting between the VP and the senator says that Biden “has told friends that if he does run for president, he will serve only one term, making an early announcement of his vice-presidential running-mate a strong possibility.”

The Wall Street Journal over the weekend reported that Biden is “leaning toward” a 2016 bid for the White House. The article referred to the Biden-Warren meeting as a significant indicator of the vice president’s frame of mind. “A surprise weekend trip to Washington to meet with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), a darling of the party’s liberal wing, represented a pivot from potential to likely candidate, one Biden supporter said.”

As Western Journalism reported late last week, a new Quinnipiac University poll of three swing states showed that Biden fared as well as or better than Clinton in head-to-head matchups with top GOP presidential candidates, even though the vice president isn’t officially in the running. The survey also showed that voters in each of the key states of Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania found Biden to be more trustworthy than Clinton. (Read more from “This Secret Meeting Just Held in D.C.
