Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.

1. Biden 2016? (link)

Joe Biden thinks he has a chance to become President in 2016. At least, he isn't closing the door on the idea.

In an interview that aired Thursday on NBC’s “Today,” Biden once again left the door open for running for president in 2016.“I am never ready to close the door on anything,” Biden said. “I am intent on reelecting Barack Obama president of the United States of America. The rest will take care of itself.”

First, I hope President Obama isn't reelected. Second, I'm pretty sure that Joe Biden will never become President of the United States. This man has run for President before and he never gains any traction. In fact, people are still shocked that Obama chose him as the VP. However, Joe Biden is crazy and could bring some comedy into the the 2016 race.

2. Herman Cain is done, Part 2 (link)

So I haven't been married very long but even I know that what Herman Cain did was stupid. In an interview with the Union Leader, Cain said that he never told his wife that he had a 13 year friendship with Ginger White. He also didn't tell her that he was helping White out financially... for 13 years.

Herman Cain acknowledged Thursday that he repeatedly gave Ginger White money to help her with "month-to-month bills and expenses" without telling his wife.

In fact, the embattled presidential candidate said, his wife, Gloria, "did not know that we were friends until she (White) came out with this story."

In his most candid interview since the latest allegations emerged, Cain adamantly maintained that he and White were no more than friends.

Cain also stated clearly for the first time that he is considering getting out of the presidential race.

Not smart Herman. Not smart.
