President Biden told 60 Minutes last Thursday that while he intends to run for re-election in 2024, the decision is still up in the air.

"Sir, are you committed to running again, or are there certain conditions that have to be right?" Pelley asked.

"Look, if I were to say to you, I'm running again, all of a sudden, a whole range of things come into play that I have-- requirements I have to change and move and do," Mr. Biden said. "In terms of election laws. and it's much too early to make that kind of decision. I'm a great respecter of fate. And so, what I'm doing is I'm doing my job. I'm gonna do that job. And within the timeframe that makes sense after this next election cycle here, going into next year, make a judgment on what to do."

"You say that it's much too early to make that decision," Pelley said. "I take it the decision has not been made in your own head?"

"Look, my intention as I said to begin with is that I would run again," the president said. "But it's just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen."

President Biden is the oldest commander-in-chief in the history of the country. With that in mind, Pelley asked him about his fitness for the job.

"Watch me. And honest to God, that's all I think. Watch me," Mr. Biden said. "If you think I don't have the energy level or the mental acuity, then, you know, that's one thing. It's another thing, you just watch and, you know, keep my schedule. Do what I'm doing. I think that, you know, I don't-- when I sit down with our NATO allies and keep them together, I don't have them saying, 'Wait a minute, how-- how old are you?'"

"I respect the fact that people would say, you know, 'You're old,'" the president continued, "But I think it relates to how much energy you have and whether or not the job you're doing is one consistent with what any person of any age would be able to do."

"How would you say your mental focus is?" Pelley asked.

"Oh, it's focused. I'd say it's-- I think it's-- I-- I haven't-- look, I have trouble even mentioning, even saying to myself, my own head, the number of years," Mr. Biden said. "I no more think of myself as being as old as I am than fly. I mean, it's just not-- I haven't observed anything in terms of-- there's not things I don't do now that I did before, whether it's physical, or mental, or anything else."

Who among the Dems is being considered should Biden not run?

I do hope they choose wisely, since the GOP's nominee could very well be Trump (if he's not in prison) or DeSatan.

If Biden doesn’t run then the Democrats will probably nominate Dark Brandon.

I bet he hasn't decided on 2020 yet, either.

Perfectly timed incoherence. :lol:

Dark Brandon?

Dark Brandon is the version of Biden that his opponents fear.

Dark Brandon is the one who made petrol prices fall, Dark Brandon is the one who sent the FBI after Trump, Dark Brandon is the one declaring that Putin "won't get away with this".

He's too old to be president.

This.

He was too old to run for this term, let alone run again. It's far from certain if he is even going to still be breathing by the time this term is over. I really don't understand why the voting public is ok with literal geriatrics running this country.

biden, trump, palosi, etc. they are all WAY too old for the reins of power. Not to mention that all of these people are extremely smarmy, corrupt, and dangerous.

At this point I would rather the nominees be chosen at random through a national lottery of SSNs or something and then we can vote from there.
