Washington Post said:


Here's Vice President Joe Biden on whether or not he will run for president in 2016: "There may be reasons I don't run, but there's no obvious reason for me why I think I should not run."

It's the latest quote in a long line of them that all make one thing crystal clear: Joe Biden would really like to run for president.
That's not a terribly surprising fact given that, in our mind, one of the best indicators of whether you will run for president is whether you have done it before. Once you get the bug, it never (really) leaves you. And, in Biden's case, he has already run for president twice before (1988 and 2008) and absolutely loves the hurly-burly of the political game.

Well if we get somebody like Romney (or even himself again, wouldn't surprise me) who runs for the conservative side...guess what? You bet'cha your ass people will more likely vote for Biden, if he runs. Biden says stupid things, but Romney takes the cake in stupid remarks. Romney was a poor choice last time, Perry would of been a whole lot better for the conservative side, IMO.

What really makes someone unelectable in the US?   Criticism of Israel.   It is absolutely necessary to have absolute faith in and absolute love for the state of Israel in public at all times if you want to be a national politician that doesn't want to be discredited.   Saying anything that smells even remotely critical of Israel and the ensuing anti Semitic stain will ruin a promising career every time.   It's how they slandered Ron Paul; and anyone else foolish enough to stand in the truth and speak it to the power.

So the question I had was, is Joe Biden Zionist enough to be President?   The Israeli lobby buys these fluffy yes men up like a rummage sale.   No matter how creepy the thing with the knuckles was, I'm still not sure.  Maybe Joe isn't Zionist enough?

That is changing much faster than some would like. Give it a few more years and the same will apply to criticism of Palestine.
