I really think Biden would be great. I just see Bill Clinton's third term when I look at him. Yeah, it's not going to be ground breaking, but they both share this pathological need to be loved. This leads to some deal making and getting along to just get along.
 
2014-04-17 11:07:20 AM  
Meh.
 
2014-04-17 11:35:36 AM  
Yeah, they should run Biden.

America needs a good laugh.

Let the Bidenator tell you young pups something. It's good to climb that ladder, to get yourself in a nice office with a cute little secretary. They don't pay people to drink beer at the lake and ride hogs, after all. But you don't want to climb too high, you dig? You don't want to be on that top rung, because it just makes it that much easier for some fool to push you off. While everyone is yelling and shouting at the man on the top, the Bidenator is just going to kick back, get some jack, and check out some pontoon boats on BassPro.com.

This has been proposed before. Someone even suggested a new 'America's Uncle' cabinet position. I fully support either notion.

That headline makes my head hurt. Biden has to ask Hilary for permission to tell Obama? Or something

I think it's the second "f.i.r.s.t" that makes it suck so much.

Caffeine Induced Diarrhea: I dont think Biden could have beat Romney or McCain


How would you compare those two to Paul Ryan? Because Biden creamed him in their debate, and I don't see how he couldn't do the same in either circumstance. We wouldn't have gotten the "Please Proceed" line in this universe but President Biden would still rule.

OK Mr. Secret Service guy, very funny.  Just because protecting the president is a full time job, using BIden as extra incentive to never assassinate the president is just plain lazy on your part.
 
2014-04-17 12:35:38 PM  
I'm not entirely sure why the phrase 'President Zaphod Beeblebrox' is coming to mind. Something about the Cool.. and perhaps something about distracting from the real power.

Don't be so sure that Hillary is a foregone conclusion. Warren just wrote a book, that may be a sign she's prepping to oust Hillary for the nom

Warren/Biden '16!!

I like Elizabeth Warren, too, but she's much more effective in Congress.

Besides, between Biden, Hillary and Warren, I don't want any senior citizens as president. Lord only knows we've had too many farking shiat up for at least the last 6 years.

Democrats need new blood in 2016 and beyond.

Yeah, my biggest fear is that Dems will put up Hillary only for the GOP to go on the offensive with someone much younger and attack her age as revenge for the attacks on McCain's age in 2008.  Which, sadly, I can see as an effective strategy.  Maybe not enough to win, but enough to hurt the Dems on age and/or hypocrisy, so that any other attack vectors the GOP has would be strengthened.

Which is why it bothers me that the only name we've been hearing of late as a "star" of the Dems is Hillary.  I mean, really?  Is she the only one?  Why is Hillary crowding out any other names when she technically isn't even working for the party in any official capacity at the moment?

Hell, I'd work on Warren's campaign in an instant if she said she would run, and I know a number of people from a number of states who have pledged the same.  I'd have to concede that she's old, and that's my one hesitation, but she also doesn't have the baggage or years of aggregate stress that come from being at that level of politics.

The thing I'd like is a repeat (sort of) of what we have now: a charismatic younger candidate with Warren as VP.  Biden's been great as VP because he can float an idea out there, and if it's well-received, Obama can concur.  Well, Warren can do effectively the same thing: drop a message, as she's known for being outspoken, and if the public receives it well, then the President can roll with it, otherwise, well, it's Warren's reputation to say stuff like that anyway, and what did you expect?

Now, I know what you're thinking: how about a Clinton/Warren ticket?  Cute idea, but a two-woman ticket will not fly in this country for a real long time.
 
2014-04-17 02:22:29 PM  
Politics at a national level are pretty much an older person's game, unless you have the right names and connections since birth.  You have to be old enough to have worked to gather enough experience and political cred AND you need the giant support network.  Besides, you need ample time to work through the issues of young adulthood and resolve your family situation.  Then there is the financial stability angle - which is getting worse over time, not better.  Look for an even greater delay in young people becoming financially stable enough to run for office.

Obama was really about as appealing and relevant to the younger voters as you'll ever see and he's not a young man.  So, I don't really get the "they're too old" and "we need young blood" comments.  It just isn't really feasible.

What's all this love for Biden?
 Oh sure I get the joke of caricature of created by the Onion.
 But, the real Joe Biden is just another life long politician.
 Maybe some of you forget Joe the plagiarist from one of his many failed campaigns.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Biden_presidential_campaign,_1988


Put Joe in a room with adults and he's a lightweight huff & puff of a joke with hair plugs. Not a real leader with original thoughts or vision,just a cheap political actor.

Sort of when the intellectual Al Gore ran against Ben Bradley in the primary back when the earth was cooling off 2000.
Bradly slapped the taste from that boy mouth!
Although Gore was considered the party favorite,,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Bradley

Those senators familiar with the real Al Gore went with Ben Bradley.

Yes sir.the Senators Paul Wellstone,Bob Kerry and Daniel Patrick Moynihan were all in Bradley corner.
 Plus  Robert Reich and Paul Volcker. Gore was a helium balloon next to Bradley.
 Only when standing next to the mumbling Bush did Gore look as if he had any weight or stature.

So farking grow up kids. Biden is no more a Trans Am driving, good old boy than Gene Simmions is really a demon. It's all stage craft derp.

I am sick of this country being run by 70 year old frauds .

Because our nation have been warped into geriocracy, a country of the elderly, by the elderly, and for the elderly. What are the two things our government spends most of its money on? Medicare, to help older Americans live longer, and the military, killing younger Americans in unnecessary conflicts.

The blind eye towards bullying, the insane costs of college education, and the apathy to mass shootings such as Sandy Hook in which 20 children as young as 6, all show that the well-being of our youth doesn't seem to matter anymore.

What kind of world are we leaving for our children? We aren't.
