Joe Biden endorses John McCain for President

Not much is said about Joe Biden these day. We know his first wife and an infant daughter died in a horrible automobile accident in 1972. He married his present wife in 1977. He has been in the Senate since he was twenty-nine years old. So he is a stick-to-it kind of guy. But…does that make him a good choice for being Vice President?

Well, apparently the American people in Iowa didn’t think so. In fact, he received less than 1% of the vote in the Iowa primaries along with Chris Dodd. Both candidates dropped out of the run for President of the United States after that first primary vote. Now that sort of dings him when it comes to his stick-to-itiveness. But at least he keeps his wives…unlike other politicians. I think the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, had more people vote for her for governor of Alaska than Joe Biden supporters in Iowa.

He has said, “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

He has said, “My wife Jill, who you’ll meet soon, is drop dead gorgeous,” Biden said and then joked, “My wife Jill, who you’ll meet soon, she also has her doctorate degree, which is a problem.”

He has said that he and Obama, if elected in November, “”will not be stopped from pursuing any criminal offence that’s occurred,” in reference to the President Bush and his administration.

And, he has in the past few weeks eluded to the fact that maybe he wasn’t even the right choice for Obama to pick for Vice President; that Hillary Clinton was the better man for the job. However, let’s not forget that as Barack Obama’s Vice-Presidential running mate, he said to a large crowd “I am running for the President of the United States.” Opps. I think he meant Vice-President.
