The Corner

The one and only.

Biden Gave the Smartest Speech of the Convention Thus Far.


Joe Biden made a case, an argument, and did so while making a connection to Reagan Democrats. And the strategy of attacking McCain’s judgment on foreign policy is smart, too.

But I hope the McCain VP picks up the speech right there, and takes it apart example by example. The idea that agreeing to a withdrawal date from Iraq WHILE YOU’RE LOSING is the same as winning the war and then picking a date to leave is absurd.

Biden’s trying to defend the Defeat Party. He’s given McCain the chance to point out he’s leading the Victory Party.
