Joe Biden may have picked the wrong moment to make his third run at the presidency.

Now, 18 months after that exposé, Biden's public handsiness has become a major scandal as he contemplates whether to enter the 2020 presidential sweepstakes. But this scandal won't bring Biden down. Why? Because he is utterly shameless, and America will eat it up.
