  • Biden’s verbal slip about campaign draws Democrats’ cheers

A verbal slip by Democratic favourite Joe Biden has left party faithful wondering: did the former United States vice-president accidentally reveal his plans to run for the White House?

Joe Biden, the former vice president and senator from DE, said during a speech Saturday that his record was the most progressive "of anyone running" for president, despite the fact that the political veteran has not declared his candidacy. The only problem is that Biden hasn't announced whether he will launch a third run for the White House, despite repeatedly teasing the possibility.

"I mean, of anyone who would run", he told a Delaware Democratic Party dinner crowd that promptly started to cheer.

Biden sounded like a candidate-in-waiting, pushing Democratic policies and accusing President Donald Trump of dividing the country.
