This is why I'd suck at politics.


Joe Biden in GQ on Being President in 2016.

I keep reading about Joe Biden vs. Hillary Clinton. Who’s in, who’s out, will she run, is he too old? All the stories are the same. The media is manufacturing an “American Idol’-esque contest.

You know what I’d like to see? I’d like to see Biden and Clinton announce their candidacies on the same stage-together, appearing as good friends (even if they aren’t) with big smiles. Wouldn’t that be a phenomenal show of unity? Here are two people whose platforms won’t differ that much. Let them look each other in the eye, summarize their qualifications for the audience, and conclude by saying “May the best person win”.

That’s my naive thought of the day. Now back to cynicism and discontent.
