“But what of [Biden]?
Shall we sound him?”  – Julius Caesar

“sound him,” here means “find out his feelings.”  In the play it is Cassius that says these lines, referring to Cicero, a potential co-conspirator against Caesar.  So this quote really fits if you view Hillary Clinton as Caesar (a dictator currently on top?) and Biden as a potential turncoat (will he run)?  In the play the conspirators want Cicero to join them because he is old and wise (“for his silver hairs”) and his joining them will lend credence to their cause (i.e. murdering Caesar).  It is unclear, though, if Cicero in fact ever joins them.  What did he ultimately do?  And what will Biden end up deciding to do?
