As the former vice president inches closer toward a third White House run, several moments in his long career loom as immediate political liabilities should he decide to join a Democratic primary already stocked with more than a dozen candidates. From his vote for the Iraq war to his key role in passing a bill that made bankruptcy harder to declare for debt-ridden Americans, Biden would have multiple fronts on which to reconcile his past with the future of a party that’s moved leftward even since he left former President Barack Obama’s administration.

FILE - In this Nov. 6, 2018 file photo, former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams speaks to supporters in Atlanta. Abrams has gone from losing the Georgia governor’s race to being a heavily recruited Democratic star. It’s a dramatic rise often fueled by the promotional spending of Fair Fight Action, a nonprofit she founded to promote voting rights. They can accept unlimited sums of money, which could be a problem if she runs for office again. There is no proof of illegal activity. But donation limits could be applied retroactively to the group’s spending if she runs for federal office. (AP Photo/John Amis)
