The millstone hanging around the vice president’s neck.
FrontPage: Is Vice President Joe Biden in or out?
Many praised Biden’s “honesty” for saying to Stephen Colbert on CBS’ “The Late Show”: “I don’t think any man or woman should run for president unless, number one, they know exactly why they would want to be president, and two, they can look at folks out there and say, ‘I promise you, you have my whole heart, my whole soul, my energy and my passion to do this.’ And I’d be lying if I said that I knew I was there. I’m being completely honest. Nobody has a right, in my view, to seek that office unless they’re willing to give it 110 percent of who they are.”
Actually, a completely honest answer would have been, “I’m watching the polls to make sure Hillary Clinton is completely dead, and I’m secretly meeting with donors to insure I’ll be the recipient of their money when she implodes.”
Biden may think the main issue is whether Hillary Rodham Clinton has sunk far down enough for him safely to jump in. But his problem is more fundamental. A Biden candidacy represents a third term for Obama. For what reason, on what grounds, should Americans give the policies of the Obama administration four more years? more here
