I think that the only thing Hillary would have brought to the campaign that would make her better than Biden would be the votes that were following
her. Obviously there were a great number of people that were ready for Hillary to be the Dem candidate. If she were to be Obama's running mate, many
of her fans may have automatically supported the campaign. (They also may not have, if they were against Obama to begin with) However, now this group
of voters is torn between staying with the Dem vote, or going another route.
I feel that Biden may have made his comment to try to appeal to the Hillary fans, perhaps in hopes that they would see that he is a Hillary fan and
then vote for him because of it. He did not say anyone would have been a better choice. He is not saying that he does not believe he is
qualified. He is only complimenting Hillary how he sees fit. In hindsight, he might not have used these words, knowing that it would have caused such
The fact of the matter is that Obama supports his choice of running mate, Hillary supports the choice, and Biden is qualified to be the next
VP; he may be more qualified than I believe our current VP is for the job. And if it were between Biden and Cheney... I don't think that I would be
alone in saying I would choose Biden.
