joe biden was just along for the ride. the only reason he was on the ticket to begin with is because they needed someone to make racist white liberals comfortable with obama. joe biden didn’t have an impact on obama’s supreme court justices. why do you think obama was so reluctant to encourage biden to run for president?
barack obama is worried that jim crow joe will ruin his legacy. there’s a reason for that. joe biden has a significantly greater impact on the nomination of clarence thomas. he took his greatest obstacle and shoved it aside. joe biden couldn’t stop thomas with his vote but the victimization of anita hill absolutely could have. i don’t care how he voted when he is personally, directly responsible for the conditions that allowed him to be confirmed.
