Obama-Biden: Does Obama Want A VP “Do-Over”?

While Sarah Palin is out demonstrating why her selection as Vice President was a stroke of political genius, Joe Biden was apparently out explaining how he may not be the best, well, man for the job after all:

“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.”

This flotsam of self-revelation generated the following from the McCain campaign:

Spokesman Ben Porritt offered this response from the McCain camp: “Barack Obama’s most important decision of this election, and Biden — the candidate he selects — suggests, himself, that he wasn’t the right man for the job, and that Hillary Clinton would have been a better choice. Biden certainly has a credible viewpoint on this.”

Sorry, Obama: When you make your most important decision as a candidate for President of the United States, you don’t get “do-overs.”

  1. Biden’s Obama Says:

    Obama’s biggest problem has always been that he realized early on he would have to cater for the full diversity in America and that is a difficult task for anyone. So he decided to be everything for everyone, in keeping with his culture and upbringing. He became an artist in shredding himself into so many pieces there was no core left [if he ever had any] [you very appropriately use the word flotsam] so that by the time he had to name his VEEP he had no other choice but the expedient. Joe Biden is the McCain attack dog and is otherwise only there for the Catholic vote mainly plus Hillary’s supporters, including the large swing States. He will be discarded once he has served that purpose. Why Biden accepted the nomination intrigues me more than why Obama selected him. Biden was a decent man but this is his end! It may turn out to become Obama’s obituary for Obama’s Biden. What a waste?

    You are describing the classic co-dependent personality. Obama has voted waaaay to the left; but when he speaks, you’d think he was just so middle of the road. Make everybody love me, even if I have to distort reality to do it.

    Other than Joe Lieberman – who was eaten alive by Democrats, being a VP pick is a good career move for building “brand awareness” (I think).

    My question goes to why picking a guy who got a total of something like 18,000 votes for the Democratic ticket before dropping out was an inspiring choice. Or why picking a guy who was a senator when there were dinosaurs represented change.

    Biden has been left out of the picture like so much road kill since his nomination. Nobody really seems to give a dang about him.
