Obama: Biden “would be a superb president”

Too funny to pass up, via Reuters:

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a “superb” president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report on Monday said.

Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden “has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what’s really important from what’s less important. I think he’s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he’s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well.”

“Joe would be a superb president,” Obama told the magazine in an article on Biden in its July 28 issue, which was published online on Monday.

This isn’t surprising given that Obama’s already proclaimed that Slow Joe “will go down as one of the finest vice-presidents in history”, presumably for all the great things that have happened over the past five and a half years. Personally, I hope “Chains” runs. Between Mrs. “We Struggled”, Ms. “Pow Wow Chow”, and Biden, the blogging possibilities will be endless. To quote lefty Peter Beinart, run Joe, run. He couldn’t be any worse than Obama. Or could he?
