First US Presidential Candidate (Maybe)

6.20.2005

Over at Salon.com we got news of the first democrat to formally jump into the 2008 race with both feet. unsurprisingly it is the uncompromisingly straight Joe Biden. Harry's place picked up on his comments over iraq earlier in the interview on CBS but failed to spot the senator on page 8 where he reckons he will kick start the deomcratic process of nomination a few years early.
We have ourself the first candidate of what are likely to be a lot of runners in this race. being in first gives Biden little advantage but he has considerable nous on the Hill, though most may remember his debacle in 98 where he was accused of cogging a Neil kinnock speech.
Anyway folkd sit back and enjoy the fireworks for the next 3 years as the ambitious among americas finest fight on up the greasy poll.
