Joe Biden is at the top of the internal short list Hillary Clinton’s transition team is preparing for her pick to be secretary of state, a source familiar with the planning tells POLITICO.
This would be the first major Cabinet candidate to go public for a campaign that’s insisted its focus remains on winning the election, and perhaps the most central choice for a potential president who was a secretary of state herself.
The fact Biden has been on the wrong end of every decision and is a bumbling fool who gropes women is not a deterrent for Hillary. Biden most of the time does not even know where he is or why he is there.
If she wins our enemies will have 12 years in a row of easy SoS pushovers. Its as if Obama is making her appointments for her.
I do not understand where lawyers, and failed lawyers(Hillary…Bill), get off thinking that they are fit for any other job than a lawyer. Secretary of State should be a easy choice, chose for our veteran and senior diplomats. You know the thing that they have been doing for years(eg their JOB!!).

How can you dislike old Joe more than Hillary? His net worth is only about $350,000 which means he’s probably not taken that much under the table, if he’s taken anything at all. Hillary, on the other hand, is a very experienced political prostitute. If you can pony up at least a million, you might get to spend 5 minutes with Bill. Any more time than that and you are looking at eight figures.
The one thing I will give Joe is that he would probably fit in just nice at one of my family reunion so long as politics isn’t brought up. He just seems like a ordinary guy that is in way over his head. A rabbit in a snakepit.
Yes, Joe came off looking like when he ran for president in 1988. He got caught then stealing speech lines from a British politician.
I remember when I saw him live, back in 1970 when I was in undergraduate school at the University of Delaware which was also his alma mater. He looked like a live wire compared to old man who was holding the Senate seat he won.
That’s what liberalism IS; what liberals ARE. Clueless with flawed judgment. It’s why they’re liberals.
Slow Joe Biden is such an imbecile, the world will be on fire inside of six months. We need a tremendous statesman and diplomat - and I can’t even think of one in our past who’d have been capable enough. Instead we’ll get the Walking Gaffe.
He’s funny, taken in isolation. In a world ready to let go, his goofs and imbecility will be less funny. Look at what Her Hillaryness did. Obviously God The Kenyan didn’t and doesn’t think the job mattered much, either.
