Speaking at rally in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Mr Biden said: "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."
He continued: "She's a truly close personal friend...quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me. But she's first rate, I mean that sincerely, she's first rate."
The question arises: Is he serious? Is Biden going to step down in favor of Hillary?Do any of these people have any motivation or belief beyond the pursuit of personal political power? If Biden sees himself losing the vice-presidency by staying in the race, would he step down in favor of Hillary in exchange for something he could have instead of nothing? How low will these people go?
We might find out if Biden doesn't do well against Sarah Palin in the up-coming debate. If Biden is then the fool he's always been, perhaps next day he'll step aside in favor of Hillary. That should excite many Democrats, but can the average person stomach such cynicism? We'll soon see.
