    so, yes, he's a windbag, but at least he's a likeable windbang, vs Lord Vader, the last VP

    80 % of success is JUST SHOWING UP!

    •  Well.... (0+ / 0-)

      At least on Iraq, I'm not sure I'd agree. Biden voted for the AUMF. When he ran for President, he was for partitioning Iraq.

      •  And that actually (0+ / 0-)

        might not have been a bad thing.

        There's precedent for it - remember, when India was first made a state, it included Pakistan and Bangladesh.

        It might have been easier to have partitioned it in the first place.

        •  Ummm.....what do you know about Indo-Pak history? (0+ / 0-)

          When the Brits partitioned India and Pakistan (it's not true that independent India ever included Pakistan or Bangladesh), there was a bloodbath. The countries have fought how many wars since? 4? Then, there's the "Liberation War" for Bangladesh. Somewhere between 300,000 and 3,000,000 dead. Millions displaced.

          This is not a good model.
