A Joe Biden presidential campaign would break new ground

By Richard K. Barry

The New York Times recently pointed out a relative novelty in the current landscape to succeed Barack Obama as president. It's about the status of a potential Joe Biden candidacy:

Mr. Biden faces a situation unique in the annals of modern American politics. He is the vice president, the highest-ranking member of his party interested in running for president, yet he is not the heir apparent. While every sitting vice president who sought it in the last half-century captured his party’s nomination, Mr. Biden would start as the underdog if he ran against Mrs. Clinton, the former secretary of state.

There's nothing particularly interesting to say about it, given that it is obviously true.
