Vice President Joe Biden isn’t invited to Sunday campaign strategy meetings at the White House, The New York Times reported May 4.
President Barack Obama designated Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., his top surrogate on foreign policy issues, fueling speculation he’d be secretary of state in a second Obama administration.
So Washington is abuzz with rumors the president will replace Mr. Biden with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
He ought to. Slow Joe is a national embarrassment.
Osama bin Laden made plans to assassinate the president and Gen. David Petreaus, according to captured documents. But the vice president should not be attacked, bin Laden wrote, because “Biden is totally unprepared for that post.” If he were president, Mr. Biden would “lead the U.S. into a crisis.”
Something stupid the vice president says makes news nearly every week. Last week he suggested to a group of rabbis that the Bush administration was to blame for the Iranian nuclear weapons crisis, as opposed to Iran.
