Vice President Joe Biden, fresh off voting for himself in Delaware, returned to the pivotal battleground state of Ohio this afternoon to do a final round of campaign stops before polls close. And, true to form, Mr. Biden seemed to be having fun.
Approaching a booth at a Greek diner in Cleveland, Mr. Biden apologized for causing a commotion, jesting diners just came to get some spaghetti, “and Joe Biden shows up.”
Next, the vice president met, according to a pool report, “the number one Biden superfan.” The supporter, “struggling to contain excitement,” offered Mr. Biden her food before chanting, “Biden! Biden!”
Another women walked up to him to inquire if he might run for the White House himself in four years, a possibility Mr. Biden seemingly hinted at after voting in Delaware earlier today when he said he didn’t expect it would be the last time he cast a ballot for himself.
“I’m going to ask you one question, Mr. Biden. After Obama wins this election, are you going to run?” she asked.
This time, Mr. Biden downplayed speculation he might mount a presidential bid in 2016.
“Oh, I’m going to go back home and run for county council or something,” he quipped.
