I cannot imagine a circumstance in which he would get my vote. (Well, maybe I can -- if for instance he were running against Ted Cruz.) But there are things about the man himself that I greatly admire.
Good stuff. Just common sense. You have to suffer through a little Chuck Schumer in this one. Fairly warned be thee, say I. But Cruz is in there. Back to pure Cruz. Apparently Obama is trying to make this guy the face of the Republican opposition. I’m good with that.

To watch Joe Biden, you'd think he doesn't run plays on anyone. After all, that's the business of show horses (think Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul), not the work horse vice president. Except that, we read, Joe Biden wants to be president, again.
