And under the Biden team’s leadership, the Democratic National Committee has decided against preparing a debate schedule for a contested nomination fight…

In public and private, Biden himself has emphasized that he is running, effectively shutting down any discussion of the topic between the president and his close advisers, according to interviews with more than a dozen Democrats close to the White House, most of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations…

“I think people watch him with a clenched jaw and a lot of tension in their body, hoping he doesn’t make a mistake at any moment,” said a senior Democratic election strategist who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive matters. “It is obviously hard to do that as president, and it is really hard to do that as president running for reelection.” Asked whether it would be good for Democrats if Biden ran again, the person said, “I think it is a coin flip.”
