Antiwar Dems Give Biden an “A” for Effort
by

While we were traveling to Denver, I asked several Democrats about their reaction to the Biden pick. When they praised Obama’s choice of Biden, as they almost universally did, I would follow up by asking if his war vote bothered them (Biden, like the other Democratic presidential wannabes in the Senate, was a yea on authorizing the use of force). One fellow became animated and insisted, “Biden did more than anyone else to try and stop the war!” He went on to praise the resolution, crafted by Biden and Republican Sen. Dick Lugar, that would have authorized force only after all diplomatic options were exhausted. I smiled and pointed out, “Yes, but in the end he voted for the more expansive resolution the president wanted.” Silence. Then finally from his traveling companion: “You know, that’s a good point.”
