'Be careful what you wish for,' says Biden, in tease of 2020 presidential bid

Firstpost Tuesday, 12 March 2019
By James Oliphant WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Vice President Joe Biden teased a possible bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday, telling a friendly crowd of union members he may need their support "in a few weeks." "Be careful what you wish for," Biden joked to a gathering of the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) in Washington, as a room of boisterous firefighters shouted, "Run, Joe, run!" Biden, a 76-year-old former U.S. senator from Delaware who served two four-year terms as vice president to President Barack Obama, has publicly said he is weighing a run as the party's elder statesman and is in the final stages of making a decision. The IAFF has been an ardent political ally of Biden's for years, and an endorsement by the union would likely give him an early boost should he enter the race for his labor-friendly party's nomination.
