A petition on the White House website proposes giving Joe Biden his own reality show on C-SPAN. The vice president's 'cool' factor has never been higher.
From the website that gave us the idea of every state seceding from the Union in protest against President Obama's reelection comes a petition that the whole nation can get behind.
Last year, the White House website became the forum for Americans peeved by the prospect of four more years of Mr. Obama. Now, it is being marshaled for the altogether more glorious purpose of getting Vice President Joe Biden his own reality show on C-SPAN.
Mr. Biden, it seems, is having his "Hillary Clinton" moment.
For parts of the past four years, some pundits have suggested that Obama should have cast off his plain-talking, gaffe-prone vice president for Ms. Clinton, who has become the most popular member of the Obama administration in her four years as secretary of State. Clinton's sunglasses and Blackberry even launched a popular Internet meme.
