Delawareans Ponder if Biden Will Run in 2016

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Now that President Barack Obama has won a second term, Delawareans are pondering whether Vice President Joe Biden will run for the job in 2016.

Former U.S. Sen. Ted Kaufman, who was Biden's chief of staff for 19 years, said that Biden has not spent a lot of time thinking about the decision.

One consideration will be Biden's age. Biden will be weeks away from his 74th birthday on Election Day 2016. That would make him older than Ronald Reagan was during his 1984 re-election campaign. GOP consultant Ed Goeas says he is too old, noting Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is five years younger.

University of Delaware political science professor James Magee said he thinks Biden will step aside if Clinton runs.
