Biden keeps his name in the game for 2016

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

Joe Biden may run for president in 2016, or he may not. But he wants you to know he could.

Iowa. New Hampshire. South Carolina. Michigan.

The vice president is polishing his connections and racking up favors in all the right states to stay part of the conversation. He's keeping his name near the top of a list of likely contenders even if the prime spot seems already claimed by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Biden's advisers and friends say his campaigning reflects his role as vice president and a party leader, not some grand strategy to prepare for a possible presidential campaign.

But Democratic activists and donors say the signals are clear when a two-time presidential candidate who is openly entertaining a third run forges close ties in early primary states.
