Joe Biden: bumbling buffoon or shrewd political genius? Al Sharpton says the latter! From today's NYT:
No stranger to electoral intrigue, Mr. Sharpton was quick to offer a political motive: That Mr. Biden was drawing distinctions between Mr. Obama and African-American leaders like Mr. Sharpton and Mr. Jackson, to "discredit Mr. Obama with his base."
I think Sharpton's giving Biden just a smidge too much credit there.
