Does anyone anywhere actually think Biden has a prayer?
This is a serious question: With the exception, presumably, of the candidate himself, does anyone anywhere actually believe Joe Biden has even a remote chance of winning the nomination? Someone should really do a PhD dissertation on this. It’s the perfect example of just how self-consumed the inside the beltway crowd can become — of how oblivious they often are to the realities beyond.
Biden was first elected to the Senate at age 29 (he turned 30 — the minimum constitutional age — a couple of weeks later in time to take office). This is a man, therefore, who has spent virtually his entire adult life serving in the Senate — helping to decide issues of great importance, being driven around in limos and being called Senator.
As an opponent of term limits, I normally don’t feel this way, but I do sort of wonder whether Joe (who has generally been a good senator) would have been better served in the long run if, before becoming a senatorial fixture, he’d spent a little more time practicing law, selling life insurance or even bumming around Europe. Maybe that would have given him the powers of introspection necessary to look into the mirror and say with disappointment, “No, that’s never going to be the face of a president.”

No, I dont think he has much of a chance. The corporate-owned media is already on his case. The primaries will sort him out. But, who knows. After the oncoming insanity of the next two years, we may be sifting through the rubble for a warm body.

lol - oh, yes - WORLD BANK PRESIDENT PAUL WOLFOWITZ WITH HOLES IN HIS SOX!
and what’s about the face of Mr. George W. Bush?
The man with the face every mother is happy about???
So that she can - without bad conscience - tell her ugly, stupid Idiot Son, that he doesn’t have to be smart, that he doesn’t have to be an A student, that he doesn’t even need to be able to speak or write - at least he could become president!

No, not a chance. Tim Russert seems to like him and he does , for reasons I don’t understand, get invited to do the Sunday shows regularly. He may have a microphone for awhile but he’ll shoot himself in the foot with it one day.
I wish the media would fall in love with Jim Webb or Bill Moyers.
But they won’t, they will stick with McCain and now Hagel and of course, Joe Lieberman. It’s time for Sunday news? Call up the usual suspects, the American people don’t need new ideas or voices to confuse them.
I don’t care who is on this Sunday, I’ll be revving up for the ball game…..
