Biden flirts with Wall Street

Vice President Joe Biden still hasn't committed to running for president in 2016, but he's certainly flirting with the option.

Last week, Biden told Stephen Colbert that he's still dealing with the death of his son, and he didn't know if he could handle a run for the presidency. But, Biden seems to have sent out some feelers while in New York to film for Colbert's show, reports Business Insider.

Biden met with Robert Wolf, a former UBS executive, after seeing Colbert. Wolf was a strong fundraiser for President Obama during his two elections, and is known for his political involvement. Wolf is currently a public supporter of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination. Wolf told reporters that he merely met with Biden to discuss the typical, boring policy questions.

Biden may be hedging his bets until he knows how strong of a candidate he really is, but the veep is running into crunch time for a decision.
