In what's being called the biggest indication that he's considering jumping into an already crowded presidential race, Joe Biden invited lefty darling Elizabeth Warren over to his DC residence for a lengthy and cozy lunch yesterday, reports CNN.

Warren, who eschewed a run of her own, has yet to back any candidate, Friday telling WBZ in Boston that "I don't think anyone has been anointed."
