Vanity Fair is making a case for Joe Biden to run for the White House in 2020, calling the former vice president a likeable politician and champion of blue-collar Americans.

"Neither Republicans nor Democrats hate Joe Biden. His Senate colleagues consider him a mensch. He has overcome the most harrowing losses imaginable — the death of a spouse and two children — and emerged with grace," the magazine's T.A. Frank writes.

Biden's first wife, Neilia, and 1-year-old daughter were killed in a car accident the week before Christmas in 1972. His son Beau then died in 2015 of brain cancer. He was 46.

"Biden has way too much of a track record to be suspected of harboring a covert agenda, so Republican partisans would merely scorn and sometimes rage but not fear. That'd be a nice change in our political climate."

Frank says Biden's age should not be factor, either.

"If 40 is the new 30, then maybe 80 is the new 60, and Joe Biden is wise to be making (and denying he's making) quiet preparations for a possible presidential run in 2020. And when taking office he'd be only 78, which might be the new 72," Frank writes.
