Biden endorses Hillary for VP, kind of

Tired of all the Palin news?

All it took was a little nudge and Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden proved he could get himself back in the news-cycle by saying he was unqualified.  Well, that's how the McCain campaign is translating Senator Biden's words anyway.

Mr. Biden actually was being gracious when an attendee at an event in New Hampshire in a rambling almost nonsensical endorsement said he wasn't a fan of Hillary Clinton and thought Barack Obama made a wise move in selecting the Senator from Delaware.

Modesty?  Senator Biden?

Biden, who has yet to win the coveted Mr. Humility award, flashed a little modesty however by stating that Senator Clinton was not only qualified but could have been the better choice (see video below).

"Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America," Biden told the crowd. "Let's get that straight. She's a truly close personal friend; she is qualified to be president of the United States of America. She's easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America and, quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me, but she is first-rate."
