Joe Biden … More Inspired Words from Obama’s VP … “Hillary Clinton Might have Been a Better Pick Than Me”
FINALLY, a Biden sighting … Maybe he should have stayed in hiding.
As soon as Barack Obama chose Delaware Senator Joseph Biden, a long time Washington DC Insider many were left scratching their heads wondering how Biden was a better VP candidate than Hillary Clinton. Many also wondered how this represented change.
Who knew that Joe Biden felt the same way that Hillary was a better pick? What happened to the Obama/Biden ticket? This is nothing short of pathetic. There is praise and then there is this … Did Joe Biden just question Barack Obama’s judgment in choosing Biden for VP?
At a town hall in Nashua, N.H., this afternoon, Senator Joe Biden seemed to veer off into the latter when talking about Hillary Clinton, whom many of her supporters wanted Barack Obama to pick as his running mate instead of Biden.
“Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America,” Biden said. “Let’s get that straight. She’s a truly close personal friend; she is qualified to be president of the United States of America. She’s easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America and quite frankly it might have been a better pick than me, but she is first-rate.”
The Biden VP pick has been nothing short of an uninspired bust. The Biden choice opened the door for McCain and the Palin phenomenon. However, it was an insight into Obama’s first decision as a potential President. Thus one might say that Obama’s first decision was a colossal disaster. Joe Biden stated in the Democratic primaries that Obama was not ready to be President and it turns out that Biden was right.
Biden preps for debate with Sarah Palin. Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm may be stand-in. For who Biden?
