In the interview, Biden rips into Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, and newcomer, Barak Obama. While most of Biden's remarks involved his opponents' positions on Iraq, he used what his campaign considers "unfortunate" words when discussing the Democrats' newest superstar, Barak Obama.
Biden's stupid choice of calling Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” has gotten the usual response from those who make their living on the politics of race, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
As reported in the New York Times, both Jackson and Sharpton - who have both run for president — "said they had no idea what Mr. Biden meant. And both suggested they felt at least a little offended by the remarks."
Unfortunately for poor Joe, instead of the media focusing on the substance of his remarks regarding the other two contenders, his remarks have turned on the race machine which will just as surely knock him out of the race as if he had called Hillary a "smart chick."
...But, in today's politically correct America, it's easier to knock a candidate out on inappropriate remarks than it is on the substance of his or her ideas (or lack thereof).
