Former Vice President Joe Biden chatted casually with reporters Friday afternoon outside a union workers conference. Asked about his intentions about running for President, Biden exposed his strategy.
“Even if I knew for certain I was going to run for president my intention from the beginning if I were to run would be the last person to announce,” the former Vice President revealed. “Give everybody else their day, then I get a shot, then off to the races.”

But Biden also appeared to tip is hand once again.
“We’ll find out whether I can win in a primary,” he told reporters.
