FILE - In this July 16, 2015, file photo, Vice President Joe Biden, right, walks with Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., left, after arriving for a meeting with Democrats on Capitol Hill in Washington. Determined to secure support for the Iran nuclear deal, President Barack Obama is making inroads with a tough constituency _ his fellow Democrats in Congress. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden's associates have resumed discussions about a 2016 presidential run after largely shelving such deliberations during his son's illness and following his death earlier this year. But Biden has yet to tell his staff whether he will run or personally ask them to do any planning for a potential campaign, according to several people close to the vice president.

FILE - In this Jan. 30, 2000, file photo, then-Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and his wife Cindy, smile as confetti falls on them at the end of their 114th New Hampshire town hall meeting with voters at the Peterborough Town House in Peterborough, N.H. Peterborough was the sight of McCain's first town hall meeting in April 1999. It was the summer of 1999, and McCain didn’t have many big names on the side of his campaign for president. He didn’t have much money or decent crowds, and even resorted at one point to giving away ice cream to lure voters to an event. Enter the town hall. McCain will be back in New Hampshire on Aug. 1 campaigning for friend and fellow Sen. Lindsey Graham at a town hall. (AP Photo/Stephan Savoia, File)CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — In the summer of 1999, John McCain didn't have many big names backing his campaign for president. He didn't have much money, either, and even resorted at one point to giving away ice cream to drum up a decent-size crowd.
