A paradise for a sect. Political notes and scattered sapience, inter alia, for libertarian-conservatives, political junkies, and other, assorted bright and curious people....
Hey, good morning!
On last Sunday's This Week on ABC, host George Stephanopoulos asked Senator Joe Biden (D-Delaware) if he would serve as President Bush's Secretary of State in a second term. Biden said yes. According to the Times of London, however, JF Kerryhas asked Biden if he would serve in a Kerry Presidency.
The paper also lambastes Biden for lifting a speech word-for-word from then-British Prime Minister Neil Kinnock during his abortive 1988 run for the Dem Presidential nomination.
Dick Holbrooke then would go to a special Middle East post, says the paper.
Biden is not a team player and has publicly hinted that Kerry hasn't a clue in matters of foreign policy.
Today's Reuters-Zogby three-day has the President and JF tied at 47. Kerry's doing better among women but losing slightly with blacks. Conventional wisdom says that Kerry must do a lot better than the poll's 82-percent amongst blacks.
