Is Joe Biden running for president in 2020 to try and turn President Donald Trump into a one-term-man?

Is he too old? Too liberal? Just perfect?

He isn’t saying yes. But his actions aren’t saying no.

And speculation is rampant that President Barack Obama’s second-in-command is the big name in a crowded field of Democratic hopefuls that include speculative candidates Sen. Kamala Harris, Beto O’ Rourke, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker, to name just a few.

You can maybe ask Biden yourself when he is the featured star of “An Evening With Vice President Joe Biden,” a moderated discussion event scheduled for the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Jan. 28.

The press release said the moderated discussion “will go beyond the 24-hour news cycle and cover a wide range of topics and include a Q&A with the audience.”

During an appearance Monday at the University of Montana, Biden, 76, told his audience: “I’ll be as straight with you as I can. I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that have been in my wheelhouse, that I’ve worked on my whole life,” CNN Politics reported under the headline: “Let’s dispel with this fiction that Joe Biden isn’t running for president.”

In September, during a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting to consider the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham said, “if Biden runs for president, he’ll be hard to beat.”

Maybe the Fort Lauderdale audience will get a national scoop.

Or not.
