The Detroit News: As race shifts, Biden gets task of scuffing Romney
Want a peek inside the Democratic playbook as the presidential race shifts fully into general election mode? Just listen to Joe Biden......Sara Taylor Fagen, a Republican strategist and White House political adviser in Bush's administration [said:] "It's a little surprising that they've gone so hard so fast. To some degree, you want to keep the president and the vice president elevated as long as possible."One thing President Obama can do is campaign, and its one of the few successful things he does. Similarly having VP Joe Biden say stupid, offensive things also plays to his strengths.
Expect this to be a very long campaign season, with the Democrats and their media lapdogs going all-out and all-in in their fervor to reelect Obama.
