Biden's in it...
STEPHANOPOULOS: Did Senator Reid slander the generals, and does he owe them an apology?Joe Biden can drive me crazy, but he's a smart guy who's right about a lot of things a lot of us are reluctant to give him credit for (in no small part because he's so often so quick to simply take the credit for himself)
BIDEN: No and no. The fact of the matter is, this policy, the president’s policy, is an abject failure. It continues to be a failure. There continues to be denial about the progress that is not being made.
And he knows when to be a Democrat without apology.
I like that in a Senator.
