The president still needs Joe Biden because has that same sort of everyman charm that Obama has never been able to pull off very well but that was Bill Clinton's specialty.
Vice President Joe Biden was on NBC's Meet The Press today, where he gave his own opinion on Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Biden said of Wikileaks, "I would argue that it's closer to being a high tech terrorist than, than the Pentagon Papers."

Not since Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G's confrontation has a hip-hop war this serious, this menacing, this violent hit the scene...it's Colbert versus Steele!

Hijack: (v) to steal, to rob, to seize by force or threat of force.
Americans, especially since 9/11, have become all too familiar with the word and the notion of hijacking. This is so true that if we were ever on a plane and someone stood up and shouted "We're hijacking the plane!", many passengers would rush the man and give him a thorough beating.

Noted and respected Republican Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska offered some interesting tidbits on Sarah Palin recently.
This past weekend, Cindy McCain decided to jump aboard the "Whiny Little Bitch" train by crying to a group of supporters at a fundraising event that "the big, bad media" is picking on her husband and his campaign.
On Thursday, Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, who had basically been sequestered by her own campaign for fear of exposure, finally crawled out from beneath the home ice and gave her very first interview with a member of the press.
