Even though a quick scan of social media suggests the country is so over old white men, Joe Biden, the fifth hottest vice president ever, holds a special place in the hearts of all Americans. Good news, then, for everyone who was sad to see him go: Politico reported Thursday night that Hillary Clinton was considering asking Biden to take over her old gig at the State Department.
"They are spending a lot of time figuring out the best way to try to persuade him to do it if she wins" https://t.co/387Su8UptM

Politico, citing an unnamed source within Camp Clinton, noted that “neither Clinton, nor her aides have yet told Biden,” so it would be appreciated if everyone could keep this under wraps until she determines the best way to approach him with the offer.

It seems the reality of a Secretary of State Biden is a ways off at best, but the report provides a nice distraction from all the noise surrounding Clinton in the wake of those daily WikiLeaks dumps. Who couldn’t use a nice distraction, Hillary most of all?
@politico bs. won't happen.

@politico That sounds like BS. Why would you go from VP to SOS? I think somebody's running their mouth for nothing.

@dcexaminer Total nonsense. The story is nothing more than a scheme to get voters to believe the election is already over.

Biden won't be Secretary of State. But throwing his name around will amp up enthusiasm among Hillary supporters to make sure they vote.

@politico sounds like a "leak" to distract

But the anonymous source said they were totally considering thinking about asking Biden to consider thinking about it.

Beware, enemies of freedom worldwide: if Hillary’s elected, Secretary of State Biden’s gonna put y’all back in chains!

@dcexaminer Can’t we get rid of this guy?

@politico You'd think they'd win first. Hmph.

@politico HC already won, I guess? She is leading by what, 40 points? Or is it a 150 point lead today? Now you'll look silly if she loses
— Renaldo Randalvini (@RRandalvini) October 28, 2016
You might be asking yourself, why isn’t Hillary up by 150 points? Well, for one thing, she’s not Joe Biden, who probably would be up 50 points if he’d chosen to run.
And that's the reward for not running. https://t.co/10DepJ4x9B

@redsteeze Well, with Harambe no longer with us, Biden would be a natural alternative…
