When I lived in CA, Alan Cranston was one of the two CA senators. I used to shake my head and wonder just how the hell this was the best the state could do given i't population. Now, I am asking the same thing about Joe Biden. He's a proven liar. He's a smear artist. He looks stupid. He acts stupid. They are forever pulling his foot out of his mouth. And he is a leading candidate for president ? What the hell are we doing wrong ?
