Bill's done what now?

Whoa, you missed the real candidacy-killing quote from him:

Mr. Biden is equally skeptical—albeit in a slightly more backhanded way—about Mr. Obama. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Yikes. Note to Sen. Biden: A decidedly nontrivial portion of the Democratic base is African-American. Perhaps you shouldn't implicitly suggest they're mostly inarticulate, dumb, and dirty.

That's what will kill him right there.

Ah, beat me to it with the update.

Just when the Democrats finally win a majority in both Houses and can finally come together to do good works for the people, they will all be at each other's throats over Presidential politics. How do all these hats in the ring create or foster cohesiveness?

cohesiveness? Democrats?? You gotta be kidding me.

Biden's a great senator, but a terrible, terrible presidential candidate (like most or all senators). Bloviating is a religion with him. And don't forget the plagiarism business; future Republicans certainly won't. Biden's got no chance, or if he has any, it's a negative capability for the Democrats.

Biden is done. He always was. He was barely above John Kerry on the "has a chance" meter. Only Republicans think this is a big deal.

What a pompous, bigoted, windbag.

The Biden campaign is DOA. He's a DLC dem-slave for the Delaware corporate masters with no redeeming qualities. Everytime he has found himself in a position to make a stand about something that matters he wimps out.

I am stunned that is stupid enough to call Hillary's bid a no-go proposition. Have any of you Sloggers ever met a Biden Democrat? Is one of you one?

Biden needs to slink away from this contest now -- before he starts damaging anyone other than himself.

Posted by Jonathan | January 31, 2007 3:07 PM

With or without the comma, Biden has just succeeded in screwing himself.

I don't think that this was what his campaign manager had in mind when he told him to do something that would make voters forget about the old plagarism drama.

new definition for POLITICAL DEAD DUCK

little chance has become NO chance

and just to set things straight, Jesse Jackson is very articulate, classy dresser and handsome as hell today and killer pretty years ago
