VP Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren Hold Private Meeting, Sources Say

Biden and Warren have not agreed on some issues, but are known to be friendly.

Biden “traveled last minute” to Washington today for the private political meeting with Warren, the sources said.

Biden and Warren have not seen eye to eye on some progressive issues in the past, but they are known to be friendly.

Although she met with Biden today, Warren recently publicly sparred with his boss over free trade, strongly opposing President Obama’s free trade deal, which provides him with “fast-track” authority to negotiate with foreign partners.

Polling numbers seem to be in Biden’s favor, should he decide to run. A CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday found 53 percent of Democratic registered voters wanted the vice president to enter the 2016 race. Of Clinton supporters polled, half think Biden should run.

Biden has launched two previous unsuccessful bids for the presidency, in 1988 and 2008.
