I expect posts like this to be an ongoing series this election season. The Democrats are busily devouring Senator Joe Biden for his "clean black" comment (rightly so, in my humble opinion), and considering the debacles of the last two Democrat presidential campaigns I expect the infighting to be fiercer than ever.
In a critique of the Democratic field, he said of Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois: "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," he told the New York Observer, a weekly. "I mean, that's a storybook, man." ...
Talk-show hosts and bloggers seized on the Obama comment, but they also invoked criticism from a leading liberal blogger. "Really, if we live in a just world, this will be the end of Joe Biden's political career," read a post on DailyKos.com "It's clear his career has dragged on one election cycle too many."
I couldn't agree more! Democrats play dirtier politics than anyone, so the real question is will anyone survive the primary season?
The left's feeding frenzy will certainly help the right, but it would sure be nice if there was a promising Republican candidate on the horizon. Maybe a combination of Romney's personality and ethics with Newt's brains..... I wouldn't mind a ticket with Romey as President and Newt as VP in a Cheney-like role.
