What a shock. Joe Biden is an absolute idiot who, on the same day he asked a wheelchair-bound state senator to stand up for a round of applause, is now admitting: “Make no mistake about this,” Biden responded. “Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. 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’s first rate, I mean that sincerely, she’s first rate, so let’s get that straight.”
The Obama camp has got to be in a panic ever since they were blindsided by Sarah Palin’s popularity, but is there a chance that they might be laying the groundwork for Biden to step aside to make way for Hillary? If so, this would be a rather clumsy way of going about it. I realize they only have 7 weeks or so, but wouldn’t “health reasons” really be the way to go here? Then Barack could “with sincere regret and reluctance” accept Biden’s resignation to allow Hillary to step in. At least that way there would always be some doubt as to whether it was intentional or not. To float a trial balloon like this (if that’s what this is) will only serve to make Obama appear to be an indecisive buffoon who royally screwed up his first major decision as a presidential candidate.
But would Hillary’s popularity be enough to counter that?
