The president of the United States and the former vice president of the United States want to fight each other, that much is certain. What remains unclear is when this fight will take place.

“They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman, and I said ‘no.’ I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him,’” Joe Biden, a virile 75-year-old, told students at the University of Miami earlier this week, as reported by ABC News. “I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden continued. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete.
