Word is getting around quickly that at their lunch together today, President Obama gave Vice President Biden his blessing to run for president in 2016 if he chooses.

Both The Daily Beast and CNN have run with the “alleged” story and added the enticing tidbit that Biden will make his decision next month.

Now we’re wondering if Biden wasn’t trying to put together some kind of ticket during his meeting Saturday with Sen. Elizabeth Warren or if he was just asking her blessing.
