Oh joy. Guess who else is running in 2008?

Yup, it's this guy. More opportunities to say, "Senator Biden--SHUT UP ALREADY!"

Update: Yes, Senator Smarm just had his very first foot-in-mouth moment as a presidential hopeful. One that had him trying to play kiss-and-make-up with another 2008 presidential hopeful.

Dig that Observer piece where he attacks the other 2008 candidates for their Iraq war positions:

To hear him tell it, Hillary Clinton’s position is calibrated, confusing and “a very bad idea.” John Edwards doesn’t know what he’s talking about and is pushing a recipe for Armageddon in the Middle East. Barack Obama is offering charming but insubstantial fluff. And all of them are playing politics.

“Let me put it this way,” Mr. Biden said. “You didn’t hear any one of them get in this debate at all until they announced for President.”

How do you explain Feingold and his drive to cut off war funds, Senator?

To be fair, Biden admits to being a windbag. This makes his treatment of Kerry and Obama somewhat ironic. From NYT:

After barking at Senator John Kerry during the same hearing to keep his comments short (“just one minute, Senator, or we will have everybody else…”) Mr. Biden, the chairman of the committee, was the very picture of accommodation when Mr. Obama went beyond his allotted time.

Even when Mr. Obama himself noticed the clock and started to wrap up, saying, “I know I’m out of time,” Mr. Biden waved off the inconvenience.

“That’s okay,” he told Mr. Obama. “You’re making a very salient point.”

Isn't that nice. Biden, stick to hammering Bush about the misbegotten war. Otherwise...SHUT UP!
