Biden Hears Labor Day Cheers: 'Run, Joe, Run'

By Stephen Collinson, Sep 07, 2015 CNN

Pittsburgh (CNN)Make no mistake about it. Joe Biden was definitely running.

He's not yet launched a bid for president, but Biden sent a well-timed signal of exuberance and political vitality on Monday, leaving reporters and Secret Service agents in his wake as he jogged through adoring crowds on Labor Day in Pittsburgh.

The old Joe was back. And the crowd was cheering "Run, Joe, run!"

Beaming, and looking more joyful in public than at any time since the tragic death of his son Beau in May, the 72-year-old's energetic trek through streets lined with well wishers, who seemed delighted to see him, did nothing to quell speculation that he may jump into the Democratic presidential race.

And if his decision turns on his rapturous reception in the gritty Western Pennsylvania city, which is a bulwark of organized labor, there will be only one answer.

The question on everyone's lips was "Will Joe Run?"

"I am gonna run part of the parade," Biden told CNN's Brianna Keilar. "I feel like I am home right now," he said, deflecting questions about whether he would indeed jump into the race to challenge Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination.
