    And I'm definitely going to miss this guy:

    839e3de4c9dfaefc83eb6f937bd67ff9.jpg

    Man i wish he woulda ran

    just read a whole story on biden on why he didnt. whole mess of reasons.

    - Hillary sucked up a lot of reliable donors. and Biden is not rich at all

    - time he wouldve been focusing on campaign, he was taking care of his dying son

    - he thought that his entry in the race would have taken votes from hillary and given the nod to bernie and he wouldve lost his own love in the establishment

    - he ran twice and did poorly both times, and he had a plagiarism scandal in the 80s

    - he admitted that if anyone he debated against wouldve said, "youre just running to heal from losing your son" he wouldve punched him on live tv rofl

    - he thought his gaffes would have hurt him , like they did hillary

    - he knew that obama would want to hand the keys over to the first female president

    shame too. He wouldve won. Or at least squeaked it out. I cant imagine him losing PA (his home) AND Michigan.

    man, if the guy on the left ever wants to get into politics, now is the time.

    Only problem is I heard he's a college dropout (would look bad to some people) and hes the classic hollywood liberal. Bet he does a ton of shit for poor people though.

    I thought they said Biden would run in the next election?

    Since president dumbass won I'm sure none of that shit he was worried about would matter anymore.

    I got a bad feeling that since trump won everybody gonna try to run and they will try to be more outrageous than him. Side effect of letting "reality tv" into politics. Just as with the shows every next season has to have more fights cussin and scandals than the last one in order for people to tune in. I believe in our lifetime very soon we will see 2 politicians physically fight at a debate or a congress session.

    “I didn’t live my life in the right way for politics, you know,” Clooney, 49, tells Newsweek in this week’s cover story. “I [expletive] too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth.”

    Obama Ranks 12th Best In C-SPAN Survey Of Presidential Historians

    Former President Barack Obama was ranked 12th best among 43 former presidents in in C-SPAN’s third-ever survey of dozens of presidential historians.

    The network asked 91 presidential historians to rank every former president on 10 leadership attributes. C-SPAN also performed the survey in 2000 and 2009.

    Obama ranked favorably compared to his immediate predecessors: George W. Bush ranked at No. 33 (up from 36 in 2009), George H.W. Bush was No. 20 (down from 18), and Bill Clinton held steady at No. 15.

    Ronald Reagan was judged the ninth best president of all time, up from No. 10 in 2009.

    In a press release accompanying the results, historian Richard Norton Smith, an academic adviser for the project, noted that five of the top 10 judged presidents in the American pantheon served between 1933 and 1969.

    “It reinforces Franklin Roosevelt's claim to be not only the first modern president but the man who, in reinventing the office, also established the criteria by which we judge our leaders,” he said.

    C-SPAN asked historians to rate each president, on a scale of 1-10, on 10 difference leadership attributes: "Public Persuasion," "Crisis Leadership," "Economic Management," "Moral Authority," "International Relations," "Administrative Skills," "Relations with Congress," "Vision/Setting An Agenda," "Pursued Equal Justice for All," and "Performance Within the Context of His Times."

    Barack and Michelle Obama agree Penguin Random House book deal

    Former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have agreed a book deal with Penguin Random House.
    "The company has acquired world publication rights for two books, to be written by President and Mrs Obama respectively," the publisher said.

    Titles and other details have not been disclosed but the deal is believed to be worth over $60m.
    Mr Obama is the author of the bestsellers Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope.
    Mrs Obama has written American Grown - a book about food and gardening.

    "With their words and their leadership, they changed the world, and every day, with the books we publish at Penguin Random House, we strive to do the same," Penguin Random House CEO Markus Dohle said.

    "Now, we are very much looking forward to working together with President and Mrs Obama to make each of their books global publishing events of unprecedented scope and significance."
