Rumors are swirling that Joe Biden, despite having stated to the contrary in the past, may be considering a run in the 2016 election race. It’s a possibility that underscores why a Clinton candidacy exposes what’s wrong at the heart of the Democratic party.

Sources have stated that although Biden has a cordial relationship with the Clintons, he does not believe they are good for America. The Clintons have turned their name into a brand of money-making and influence. As one writer at the Huffington Post put it, “the Clintons are far more interested in making cash and clout than in doing good.”

“They’re everything he hates about the way politics operates today,” a friend of Biden told HuffPo.

A Biden run would be a strong stance against politics of yesterday, a politics that the Clinton machine has risen to the top.
