I thought the big “downfall” to Biden was his big mouth:
More than three weeks into the transition, and Vice-president elect Joe Biden generates less buzz than the non-existent first puppy.
The vice president-elect has not spoken publicly since the election, and was at Barack Obama’s side just once this week as the president-elect delivered a series of grim news conferences on the economy.
Obama instead appears to be at the center of his longtime Chicago circle.
Good. I like Biden as a person, but after Darth Cheney, I am all about limiting the standing and authority of the VP.
