"Make no mistake about this," Senator Joseph Biden (D-DE), Democratic vice presidential nominee, told an audience member at a Wednesday rally in Nashua, New Hampshire, "Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be Vice President of the United States of America."Meh, well...good with the bad, ya know. Kinda...umm...geez Joe...well, at least he wasn't talking about Sarah Palin at the time.
The audience member, as ABC News reported, had told Biden that he was glad Biden was chosen over Senator Clinton (D-NY) as Senator Obama's (D-IL) running mate "not because she's a woman, but because, look at the things she did in the past."
"She's a truly close personal friend, she is qualified to be president of the United States of America," Biden went on. "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's first rate--I mean that sincerely--she's first rate, so let's get that straight."
