One to Watch...Fantasy Dems Anyone?
The more I read about Senator Joe Biden the more I like the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee.
He just wrapped up a two-week tour of Iowa, a must for any Presidential contender, and recently came under fire for remarks against Wal-Mart, the nation's largest private employer.
I don't think I've ever set foot in a Wal-Mart, but Mr. Biden is calling the private sector to task for the well being of other Americans. If a company is going to profit off cheap labor then they have a responsibility to provide for healthcare for an obviously essential workforce.
Of course the right will have none of this and Mr. Biden might as well have burned a flag. By attacking a venerable institution in the right wing psyche Biden has been dismissed as a Democrat snob who's out of touch with the American people.
I like Biden. I want to see more of him. I want to know what you think about him, too.
In fact, I think we should create our own fantasy Democratic party! Who would we nominate for Pres, Vice Pres? Who'd serve on the President's cabinet?
This could be fun and you don't have to work on Monday so play along. NOW.
