Say it Ain't So, Joe; Biden considering presidential run

Vice President Joe Biden is still very much considering a bid for the White House, people close to Biden say, and will make a final decision at the end of the summer, targeted for September.

The Iowa caucuses are scheduled for early February, meaning Biden would have roughly four months to barnstorm the first-in-the-nation state before the contest turned to New Hampshire.

Front-runner Hillary Clinton has faced a surprisingly tough challenge from democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, who is within striking distance in Iowa despite not being registered as a Democrat and trailing far behind in establishment support. Sanders' surge suggests Clinton could be once again beatable in a Democratic primary.
(Of course if you read the chart with this load o' crap article, you'll see Bernie "Kill the Capitalists" Sanders currently polling 31 points behind Mrs. Clinton.  Hell'uv'a surge, huh?)
