I was jotting something down just now and was only half-listening, but it sounded like Biden took Clinton to task for refusing to "negotiate with herself" on Social Security reform. If so, I second Biden's complaint. I think it's a little bizarre to say something like that--as Bush did--even when you're president. But to suggest you don't have an obligation to lay out what you'd do on a major issue as a candidate verges on outright arrogance.
