In all the publicity about the ‘veep’ list, a few names continue to surface other then Hillary Clinton. We’ve heard about Tim Kaine (BTW: who the hell is he?), Evan Bayh, a couple of Republicans (screw ’em) and then the one other name that keeps popping up: Joe Biden.
My personal take is that Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton can be more effective in the Senate changing the flawed policies of the last 7.5 years. But many of us also want to roll the Republicans in the largerst tidal wave since Johnson beat Goldwater. For many Clinton supporters that means Hillary Clinton has to be on the ticket. Taylor Marsh has a fine post titled ‘Who Will Channel Hillary?’. I’m swimming upstream with my opinion.
In Taylor’s post, however, we again see the name Joe Biden. So lets get down to the reality.
Who the hell is Joe Biden? Joe Biden gave a very substantive long-form interview to Judy Woodruff of PBS during his presidential campaign.
I want him in the Senate yet he is also the only person who has admitted that, while he doesn’t want the Veep slot, if asked of course he would serve the nominee and his country. It was an honest answer. How rare.You want to know at least one of the contenders? Watch this. I’ll look for more info on the others.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFHRIjTwV0Q
