One thing you have to give Democratic vice-presidential candidate Sen. Joe Biden is that he often slips into a fit of honesty to the great chagrin of the Obama campaign.


In this less than one-minute video Biden hesitates — as though he knows he shouldn’t say it — and tells a crowd to their surprise that “Hillary Clinton would have been a better pick for vice president than me”


Video.

It's called graciousness. And it wasn't always so rare.

Clinton would have been a better pick. Biden is annoying.

(And when I heard that Biden had been picked, I did a victory dance that Clinton wasn't picked because I knew McCain would have had no chance in that case).

Maybe the DEms are preparing to have Hillary take over from Biden. He may be laying the groundwork for this.

See how one word can make a sentence completely different, he didn't say "would" he said "might".....nice try at twisting the facts though.

Ol' Rushbo said weeks ago that Biden will figure out some way to get out of this, he is in way over his head...

There is nothing better than REAL straight talk, not the scripted bullsh*t that is uttered by McCain.

With Biden, you get a guy who will speak off the cuff, and that is what "worried" some people, as if it somehow is a bad thing to be open, honest, and willing to admit we ALL make mistakes from time to time.

Thats hilarious. And Palin is, no doubt, over qualified after 20 months as Gov. of a population the size of Memphis
