Apparently Joe Biden is reading this blog. He saw this post, from May 06, and has taken my advice to run for president. No exploratory committee, no nothin' - "I'm just runnin'."
I hope he stays pissed off. It seems like most of the other candidates, on both sides, are celebrity, or novelty, candidates, rather than true political powers. Having said that, I do think Hillary Clinton is qualified, but I just think there is too much baggage with her, and she is ultimately unelectable west of, say, New York. I guess we'll see how that little prediction goes. I also think Obama is vapor-ware, ultimately a novelty. When the rubber hits the road, he won't be there.
I noted in May that Biden seems like he was truly pissed off with the whole interior of the Beltway. I hope he remains so. There are some tough questions that need to be asked, and answered.
