Joe Biden, from the very outset of his 2020 bid, has sought to leverage his history with old running mate President Barack Obama to propel him to the Democratic presidential nomination — the problem is, this does not appear to be a plan shared by the former president or his closest advisers.

First, there was the persistent criticism of Biden’s campaign from Obama’s inner circle. Then, there were the lingering questions over why “44” has not simply endorsed his former vice president. Now come reports that Obama has made discouraging — even derisive — comments about his candidacy.

“[Y]ou know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden,” Obama said about a connection with voters, according to a recent Politico Magazine report. That remark reportedly was made to one of Biden’s Democratic primary opponents.

An August New York Times report also cited a source who claimed that before Biden officially entered the 2020 race, Obama told him, “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t.”
