WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden may be close to announcing whether he will run for president.

Sources say the key question is whether or not he has the emotional energy for the battle.

Biden has been meeting with Democratic leaders, seeking advice and opinions on his viability as a candidate.

Political analysts say Biden’s best bet is to declare his intentions in the next three weeks.

That would give him a slot at the first Democratic primary debate Oct. 13 in Las Vegas.
