Would you vote for Joe Biden in 2016?

FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

It's never too early to start looking ahead to the next election.

President Joe Biden.

You may or may not think it has a ring to it.

But that may be just what the vice president has on his mind for 2016.

According to Politico, the often-unpredictable and entertaining Mr. Biden, who's already been down this road twice before, is quietly assembling a team of advisers which includes a top Clinton-era operative.

So one might wonder if Biden thinks the third time might be a charm.

Close friends say right now he's focused on helping President Obama win a second term.

He's already popping up on the campaign trail-and depending on what's on his mind, he can arguably be the most interesting one out there.

After that though, friends think - and think he thinks - a potential White House run could be on the table.

Not everyone says that's such a great idea.

After all, he'll be 73 and has been known to put his foot in his mouth on occasion - sometimes on no occasion.

Of course there is also Hillary Clinton - who is a much bigger star in the Democratic party. She ran in 2008 and came very close to beating Obama for the nomination.

There was even talk she was going to replace Biden on the ticket as President Obama's running mate this go-round.

There are also some younger up-and-comers who could potentially breathe new life into the party and may want to give it a go.

Politico suggests New York Governor Andrew Cuomo or Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, to name a couple.

Never mind all that. I hope Biden jumps in. It would be the most refreshing thing to happen to presidential politics since, well, Obama ran.
