Stumping for Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) in Minneapolis today, Joe Biden said that President Obama had to basically beg him to jump on the ticket as vice president.And this:
“I said, honestly, I don’t want to be vice president,” Biden said. “I will do anything I can to help you, but I don’t want to be vice president.”
“Please, go home and talk to your family about it and get back to me as soon as you can,” he said Obama told him.
According to the White House pool report, the vice president then turned his speech toward Minnesota’s other senator, Al Franken (D).Here's hoping Romney will choose a VP as awesome as Obama did. Maybe someone to make him look, you know, a little more severely conservative by comparison. It's a shame Arlen Specter switched parties, though he could always switch back and pay lip service to a change in philosophy. (Oh, wait, he and Romney aren't that friendly.) But at least Arlen voted in favor of Obama's Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which Romney now says he supports. (Note to Team Romney: since Mitt supposedly has a "women problem," he could go with a female RINO like Olympia Snowe or Lisa Murkowski and kill two birds with one stone. That would really set the base on fire, eh?)
“Let me tell you, he is deadly serious,” Biden said of those who may have doubted Franken’s chops from his SNL career. “He has been one of the leading legal scholars.”
