Biden: Hillary might have been a better choice for VP, is qualified to be president now

“There’s praising a colleague effusively. And then, there’s going so far that the praise diminishes yourself.” notes the Boston Globe, in response to the fact that at a town hall in Nashua, N.H., this afternoon, Senator Joe Biden seemed to veer off into the latter when talking about Hillary Clinton, whom many of her supporters wanted Barack Obama to pick as his running mate instead of Biden.

It’s a curious statement for him to make considering that during the primaries he repeatedly alleged that Obama wasn’t qualified to be president.

“Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America,” Biden replied, standing before a crowd at a Nashua rally. “Let’s get that straight. She’s a truly close personal friend; she is qualified to be president of the United States of America. She’s easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America and, quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me, but she is first-rate.”

The clip left blogger Allahpundit to quip And so, with this, the number of Americans who don’t think Hillary would have been a smarter pick stands at one.

He goes on to ask the following questions:

Serious question: If Palin aces the Charlie Gibson interview and McCain bounces out to, say, an eight-point lead, does Obama decide that Biden needs to spend more time with his family, swap in Her Majesty, and launch the gender politics clusterfark to end all clusterfarks? It’d have to be done before the VP debate on October 2; they wouldn’t want to miss the chance to draw the contrast with Palin and cement the substitution in the public’s mind by not having her in place already for an event as high profile as that.

Even more serious question: If Obama’s imploding, why would Hillary agree to come aboard? Better to let McCain finish him off and then skip to the nomination in 2012.

Still more serious question: If McCain had chosen Palin before Obama picked his own VP, is there any doubt who the choice would have been? A

nd the most serious question of all: What is this tool doing telling audiences Obama should have gone with Hillary? Is there any conceivable strategy behind that? A feeble ploy for the PUMAs, maybe, or just Biden being Biden?

    Let me get something straight between myself and who ever wishes to vote for either candidate

    *IF* you wish to have/hold your opinion on whom you vote for. That is a right that I both agree with and defend..

    If you wish to discuss the merits or both in an intelligent fashion I will not only listen but offer up my opinions also and respect yours while also asking that you return the same respect to me.

    What I don’t give a flying FUCK about is the stupid bullshit postings being put up that are slanderous, hateful and childish.

    That just shows me the exact degree of your personal brainwashing and sheer stupidity when it comes to anything meaningful and important while also belittling whatever opinion you may have.

    If you support someone, do just that, SUPPORT THEM.

    Do not show your lack of character in trying to force feed me any of that negative horse-shit to try to make some sick demented joke that isn’t funny but hurtful and make you out to be an asshole.

    The job of becoming the President of the United States is something where the only thing that matters is who will *DO* the best job.

    ANYTHING other than that is showing how mean spirited you really are.

    No bullshit photo shopped pics of Sarah Palin in a bikini or Obama picking cotton under a Mass’er. or any of the other moronic crap.

    That I can do without.

    I *AM* a registered Independent for a VERY good reason. And the ONLY thing that matters is what GOOD either of them can do.

    Not the fucking DUMB SHIT brainwashing that anyone tries to shove down MY throat.

    People who are THAT stupid can just go the FUCK away.

    While going and having your perverted political/mental mutual masturbation sessions on your own

    What does any of that have to do with the topic at hand? Are you drunk? What in the hell are you talking about? If you’re going to rant, at least stay within the confines of the topic. Otherwise, you just sound like a babbling madman.

    Any violent replies will be duly ignored.
