Perhaps Joe Biden is a bit too "authentic"?!

Politico cites multiple sources claiming VP Joe Biden anonymously smeared Clintons, floated possible presidential run. On August 1st, Maureen Dowd, a reporter with a history of slanted, sexist attacks on Hillary Clinton, cited an anonymous source who told a moving story of a Beau Biden deathbed conversation with his father. "He tried to make his father promise to run, arguing that the White House should not revert to the Clintons and that the country would be better off with Biden values." The VP's office isn't denying that the Vice President was the source, but says the story is "offensive" and that Politico is wrong to suggest that Biden intended the leak to be a trial balloon for a presidential candidacy. This has lead to claims of sexist double-standards in the race.
