Joe Biden may say some dumb things...

but this quote is, I think, quite good (from his last speech to the senate). Let's hope the new administration really intends to strive for such noble goals.

"Friendship and death are great equalizers. Death will seek all of us at some point, but we must chose to seek friendship. Our ability to work together with people with whom we have real and deep and abiding disagreements, especially in these consequential times, I believe is going to determine whether or not we succeed in restoring America. I think it is literally that fundamentally basic."

That's a very noble quotation. I'm personally very impressed with Obama's perspective on things as well. Although I didn't listen to the speech, I'm wondering what about America needs to be restored? Seriously, the "American dream" of owning stuff or just plain being happy, or the devilish doctrine of rugged individualism? Maybe it's the political climate in Washington? Maybe it's the attitude towards a sitting president? I don't know...the point about restoration at the end just got me thinking.

Joe Biden is the most retarded man on the planet, and I think that is one of the dumbest quotes I have ever heard. Bye Bye America. Hello communist 3rd world country.
