Biden Thinks Hillary Would Make a Better Vice President

September 10, 2008 · Filed Under Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden ·  

Barack Obama might be exploring a switcheroo with his vice presidential nominee. What else could explain why Joe Biden said today that Hillary Clinton might have been a better pick for the position than him, according to ABC News.

At a rally in Nashua, N.H., a man in the audience told Biden how glad he was that Obama picked him over Hillary, “not because she’s a woman, but because, look at the things she did in the past.”

“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.

So much for the old can-do spirit.

Barack Obama Goes to “New Pennsylvania”

Not so long ago, Obama touted how he’d been to 57 of 58 states, and I’ve been wondering which state is #58.

Well, I guess the mystery is solved. It’s New Pennsylvania. That must be a more progressive Pennsylvania where they don’t cling to guns and religion.

I think it falls somewhere in between St. Louis and Kansas City.

Sarah Palin at the Alaskan Republican Roundtable Debate in 2006

September 10, 2008 · Filed Under Joe Biden, Sarah Palin ·  

Back in 2006, there was an Alaskan Republican Roundtable debate involving some of the Republican candidates for governor: Sarah Palin, then-Governor Frank Murkowski, and former Alaska State Senator John Binkley.

The video runs nearly an hour, and as you can see, Binkley and Murkowski attempted to make it a two-way debate.

However, Sarah Palin was having none of that, and as we all know, she went on to win the primary and general election to become Governor of Alaska.

For those who think she won’t be able to hold up to Joe Biden, this video gives a look at her fabric and what he can expect.
