Joe Biden for President?

Don't mistake the title of this post as an endorsement. Far from it. Just pointing out an article from Newsweek, titled The Case for Joe Biden. I doubt I agree with Sen. Biden on many (if any) issues, but unlike most of his fellow senate Democrats he comes across as a likeable guy. Even when he says something I completely disagree with he doesn't say it in a hateful manner. I could see him being a formidable candidate in 2008. There was an item in the article that I didn't know about Biden.
A far more important measure of his character happened in 1972, five months after he was elected to the senate, when he lost his wife and daughter to a car crash. From then on, he commuted home by Amtrak every evening to raise his two boys. He was never linked with actresses, models or late-night carousing.
As I said this is NOT an endorsement, but there are worse folks considering running.

Joe's biggest problem is the plagarism he was accused of a while back.

He is one of the more moderate democrats, and if the party was still run by moderates, he probably would be formidible.

However, with the moonbats seeming to take over things, he might have a tough time with the primaries.

I like Joe Biden, his recent SCOTUS hearings performance notwithstanding. Too bad there aren't more civil moderates like him on both sides of the aisle.

We'd all be a lot better off.
