Evoking 1968, Biden asks: What if Obama had been assassinated?

Joe Biden contemplated a most severe, and awkward, query at a marketing campaign cease Friday: What if Barack Obama had been assassinated throughout his presidential marketing campaign in 2008?

The scenario came as Biden discussed the impact that the 1968 assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy had on his own life and how that had prompted him to run for office. "What would've happened in America?" He was successfully elected to the Senate at age 29 in 1972.

The 76-year-old Biden served as Obama's vice president for two terms and was a USA senator representing DE for 36 years.

Former Vice President and 2020 front runner Joe Biden was at an event in New Hampshire, talking about the new generation of young people who have been energized to political activism over President Trump's election.

The former vice president also said that he was accused of being gay by critics of his support for the Equal Rights Amendment (E.R.A.) that would guarantee women protections under the constitution when it was up for ratification in the 1970s and 80s.

"I remember because I was such a big supporter of the E.R.A in 1972, quote - to show you how things have changed, thank God - "Well, you know why Biden is for the E.R.A., he's probably gay".

"He's now feeling the pressure of an economy teetering on a recession and he's not handling it very well", Biden said.

Although Biden is considered the frontrunner in the race and a leader in the polls, he has been criticized for his age and his tendency to make controversial comments.
