Although it might feel like it, Hillary Clinton isn't the only person dropping hints about a run for the presidency in 2016: Joe Biden will attend the annual Senator Tom Harkin steak fry fundraiser next month in Iowa. The steak fry, you see, is in an early primary state, and it's a traditional stop for Democratic presidential contenders. 

But this isn't Biden's first small geographic step into the 2016 rumor mill. It's his second hinty Iowa trip this year, since President Obama secured re-election. Biden's visited South Carolina in 2013, and has designs on New Hampshire, too. The Vice President also filled his inauguration celebrations with pretty obvious hints in the form of a posse of invitees from early states. Here's Iowa Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal talking to the Des Moines Register about Biden's inauguration bash:

“I don’t know why, but there seemed to be an awful lot of people from Iowa there and an awful lot of people from New Hampshire there. I heard some folks who talked with a little bit of a southern drawl and I said, ‘Where are you guys from?’ and they said, ‘South Carolina,’” Gronstal said. “I’m not sure why people from all the early states were massively over-represented at a Joe Biden event.”
