Biden: Senator Clinton might have made a better VP pick

Raw Story | September 10, 2008

“Make no mistake about this,” Senator Joseph Biden (D-DE), Democratic vice presidential nominee, told an audience member at a Wednesday rally in Nashua, New Hampshire, “Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be Vice President of the United States of America.”

The audience member, as ABC News reported, had told Biden that he was glad Biden was chosen over Senator Clinton (D-NY) as Senator Obama’s (D-IL) running mate “not because she’s a woman, but because, look at the things she did in the past.”

“She’s a truly close personal friend, she is qualified to be president of the United States of America,” Biden went on. “She’s easily qualified to be Vice President of the United States of America, and quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me. But she’s first rate–I mean that sincerely–she’s first rate, so let’s get that straight.”

“Barack Obama’s most important decision of this election, and Biden — the candidate he selects — suggests, himself, that he wasn’t the right man for the job,” said McCain spokesman Ben Porritt, “and that Hillary Clinton would have been a better choice. Biden certainly has a credible viewpoint on this.”
