CNN: Obama Gives Biden 'Blessing' to Run for President

CNN: Obama Gives Biden 'Blessing' to Run for President
(Getty Images) Out From Under His Shadow? President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden

President Barack Obama has given Vice President Joe Biden his "blessing" if he chooses to launch a White House run.

A CNN report cites a senior Democrat in the story, saying the pair met for a regularly scheduled lunch meeting Monday.

Biden was also scheduled to meet with two key Obama advisers — Anita Dunn and Bob Bauer — Monday evening at his residence on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory. Dunn and Bauer, who are married, have worked in the Obama White House off and on since 2009 and are still close to the president, CNN reports.

Speculation is growing that Biden will join the Democratic race for president in the near future. A Monday morning report claimed it's looking more and more likely that Biden will run, while it was reported elsewhere that Biden will meet with several big donors in two weeks.

Hillary Clinton is the leading candidate for president on the left, but a scandal surrounding her use of a private email address and server while she was secretary of state threatens to derail her campaign — and possibly bring an indictment.
