First on CNN: Biden to meet with DNC

Washington (CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill will appear at a private reception at the Democratic National Committee's meeting in Washington on Tuesday, according to two Democrats familiar with the event.

The unannounced reception will take place with party delegates after the DNC meeting concludes in the afternoon.

It's another sign that Biden is intent on maintaining political support with a possible 2016 bid on the horizon.

"Biden has a national network of supporters, and this is a reminder to them that he's still in the game," said one DNC member invited to the event. "What time is Hillary coming?"

    Personally, I don't think Hillary or Biden will be a major player in the 2016 race. I think the "window of best opportunity" passed both of them by in 2008. Someone else will emerge as a stronger contender than either of them.

    "It's another sign that Biden is intent on maintaining political support with a possible 2016 bid on the horizon."

    Shaking in laughter. Apparently what Biden is doing is succeeding and is on the par with the $arah Pay-Me 2008 post election coverage.

    It is fun to watch the media trip over itself with its "is he or isn't he" ... logic.

    Go Joe, go!! Hillary, stay home. We need a Republican (if we can find a good one) in the WH now more than any time in history.

    I think it's only natural that VP Biden would want to run for the Presidency. Other VP's have done the same. I like Hillary but I also like VP Biden. Too early to make a decision on this one. Let's wait and see how things go for awhile...

    Play long ball Democrats; it can not be about Joe or Hilary.

    The GOP`s extremism, their willingness to "cheat" [attempts @ voter suppression, attempts@ changing the APPORTION of electoral votes in RED states], their unflinching alignment with the GUN INDUSTRY and their WEALTH TRANSFER to the "job creators" via tax policy has created a tremendous opportunity for a generational electoral tidal wave that can lock them out of the presidency for another 20 straight years.

    Don`t coronate Joe or Hilary; prime the pump NOW with 35 & 45-somethings.

    I agree with the long ball strategy. Democrats have always been outplayed by the long term plans that Republicans put into play. The current entitlement crisis has been one decades in the making called "starve the beast."
