100 Words -- Biden, His Time

Watching Vice-President Biden and Speaker Boehner chatting quietly while waiting for the Pope, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said something like, “These two guys in a room alone could straighten out Washington fast.” I had an epiphany. Who else has the experience, the relationships with Congress, the everyman’s touch – gaffes and all – that Biden has?  Certainly not the Republican front-runners, who are all amateurs. Hillary’s circle-the-wagons mentality worries me. Sanders is too much the loner. A recent poll suggests the country wants not a revolutionary but a repairman, someone who can make things work again … an ordinary Joe for extraordinary times.
