Trump had an event last night in S.C. For whatever reason he could not arrange it for the Littlejohn Coliseum at the University. Instead it was held at a livestock arena. Of course he likely did not know what to expect. Arrival at the Greenville airport and vehicles down to the arena. He pointed out that it was cold in the building. So the best he could get was a place where livestock may be bought and sold in an unheated building.

Some story that Biden might get a third term. How? Clinton lags Sanders as primaries come and go. She needs help so she will announce (well before the time when a V.P. is normally chosen) that her running mate will be J. Biden. If she can not complete her term for some reason who better than a V.P. who had served for 8+ years to take over.
Biden was a viable candidate himself but chose not to run. Being viable for the Democratic nominee, he may be a popular choice since Obama has stated that he would choose Clinton over Sanders. Clinton choosing Biden might be what she needs to get the nomination.

Any others better than Biden for her to choose?

Has an incoming President ever kept the same VP any time in American history?

I could see her asking Brown of California to placate Sanders supporters.

She's obviously going to ask Bernie to be her VP!

Always a bridesmaid - never a bride. I don't see it. It's an uninspired choice.

So Biden at 73 is not too old?

And I wonder if Biden wants a VP again without running for presidency himself. It would seem like a insult, as if he is only good to be a VP, thrice in a row, and no more.

I don't think Biden would accept it, and I don't think Hillary would ever consider asking Bernie to run with her.

I agree. Hillary won't choose Bernie. It would be nice if she could find someone to appeal to the youth vote. You think Deez Nutz would consider suspending his campaign as an independent to run on her ticket?

Twice. George Clinton (Jefferson and Madison, 1805-1812) and John Calhoun (John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson, 1825-1832)

Back in those days the vice president and president were both on the ballot. Before the 1804 election the Vice President was the candidate who finished as runner-up in the Presidential election.

It wouldn't have been consecutive, but former Nixon Vice President (and eventual successor) Gerald Ford was Reagan's first VP choice in 1980, but negotiations broke down when an agreement on a "co-presidency" that would have given Ford sole Executive power over some cabinet appointments couldn't be reached.

Candidates look for balance. One with Clinton's experience will have wide latitude in selecting a running mate. Clinton will choose someone young and probably Hispanic. He/she will be the future star of the party.
