And So It Begins

I take issue not with the fact that Biden is criticizing his own campaign's tactics, but rather I am worried that Obama is getting undermined and outshone by his running mate.  As president of the United States, the buck must stop with Obama.  It sends the wrong picture now, and would certainly send bad signals in the White House if every time "President" Obama speaks, the nation turns to Joe Biden for confirmation. 

It was wrong to select Biden in the first place.  The fact that his disagreements are already being publicly aired only hightens concerns that in a time of national crisis we will not have a unified front to protect national interests.
