|Biden Suggests He Would Only Serve One Term: Report ||Belichick cuts presser short after AB questions |
Former vice president Joe Biden has reportedly suggested that he would only serve one term if elected president but has stopped short of publicly pledging not to run again.“If Biden is elected, he’s going to be 82 years old in four years and he won’t be running for reelection.” a Biden campaign adviser told Politico, arguing that the former vice president could serve as a "good transition figure" to defeat Trump and usher in the "next generation of leaders."“He’s going into this thinking, ‘I want to find a running mate I can turn things over to after four years but if that’s not possible or doesn’t happen then I’ll run for re-election.’ But he’s not going to publicly make a one term pledge,” another senior Biden adviser said.Democrats have raised concerns about Biden's advancing age, noting that he will be 82 in four years. The more progressive wing of the party has also been cool towards Biden, saying he does not represent the new leftward direction of the party. However, critics of the notion of making a one-term pledge have said Biden would do himself a disservice and damage his presidential power by doing so.Biden responded "no" in April when asked whether he would serve only one term, but in recent months has hedged more on the issue.“I feel good and all I can say is, watch me, you’ll see,” Biden told the Associated Press in October. “It doesn’t mean I would run a second term. I’m not going to make that judgment at this moment.”The former vice president continues to outpace his Democratic primary rivals, polling at 28 percent, more than 10 points ahead of Senator Bernie Sanders's 17 percent, according to the Real Clear Politics average of polls on Wednesday.

A former Mexican government official responsible for public security has been charged with accepting millions of dollars in bribes from the Sinaloa drug cartel once run by Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman to help it operate with "impunity" in Mexico, U.S. prosecutors said on Tuesday. Genaro Garcia Luna, 51, who now lives in Florida, faces charges of drug trafficking conspiracy and making false statements, and could spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted, the Department of Justice said. Garcia Luna was arrested in Dallas on Monday and is expected to face the charges in the same Brooklyn, New York, court where a jury convicted Guzman in February on drug trafficking charges.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nationâ€™s military, the mindâ€™s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagonâ€™s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
