As surprising as this may be for some, not everyone on the left hand side of the political spectrum is rooting for Hillary Clinton come 2016. Al Gore, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders all have their own fair share of followers.
And then, according to Corvette Blogger, there’s a group of Joe Biden supporters who would love for the Corvette-loving Vice President to toss his hat into the ring.
The “Draft Biden” movement even has its own bumper sticker, the image of which can be seen above. Accompanied by the text “I’m Ridin With Biden,” the image is a stylistic homage to President Barack Obama’s “Hope and Change” campaign posters from his first election, which shows Vice President Joe Biden behind the wheel of a Corvette C7 Stingray.
The still image itself was lifted from Biden’s cameo in the Julia Louis-Dreyfus video from the 2014 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, but even outside of the VP’s appearance there, he is a longtime fan of the Chevrolet Corvette. He owns a restored 1967 Corvette C2 big block, which occupies his garage back home in Delaware – though he rarely has the occasion to drive it.
Not that it’s our place to comment on politics, but at this point, Hillary’s victory in the Democratic primaries looks all but guaranteed. But with opposition from a dangerously cool mix of humanizing and catchy like the “I’m Ridin With Biden” draft movement bumper sticker, who knows? This movement might catch on pretty quick.
