Joe Biden says he doesn't need Obama's endorsement
Dec 04 2019
Obamareportedly told an unnamed candidate that he doesn't have the same "intimate bond" with voters, particularly in Iowa, that he had during his 2008 campaign.
"He may have said that".
But the real aim of the 18-county swing is to expose Biden to parts of the state he hasn't visited yet, and to quiet chatter that he has kept a slower campaign schedule in the state than most of his top-tier rivals. "I was the one that was sent into Pennsylvania, I was the one that was sent into Colorado, I was the one that was sent into Virginia, I was the one who was sent into Florida".
But on Sunday night, with 64 days until the Iowa caucuses, Warren's campaign switched it up - an attempt to offer a more personable pit stop on the campaign trail on the heels of the candidate's recent dip in the polls - and the result was, indeed, unique. "Oh, great, she had a showing in Chicago", Biden said, according to Politico. "Show me any numbers".
"You don't want to have everybody see everything, every single side of you".
A truly weird clip of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden from two years ago went viral over the weekend, showing the former VP telling the crowd stories about kids touching his leg hair, sitting on his lap, and roaches. And there came a day when I had to call her and say, this is over. "Tell me. Tell me where the polling has manifested itself", he said.
Biden lamented media coverage that he said dismissed his candidacy because he was too moderate.
Biden then told reporters that if it had been him "stealing" Buttigieg's plan, "I would be a plagiarizing, no good, old man who did bum bum bum". "If they were replicating what we did in '07, there would already be a Harris or Buttigieg barber shop and hair salon program in place on the grass-roots level that went under and around the black establishment in the state".
Biden is now in a three-way tie for second place in Iowa with Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders.
