Single Finest Moment in Drexel Debate Goes to Joe Biden

Days Until Bush Leaves Office = 446

While the mainstream media goes on and on about the Clinton-Edwards-Obama Mutual Deprecation Society on display in Philadelphia last night, the real story, in my view, is that another candidate kept his eye on the ball and took the fight to the Republicans in a way none of the other candidates came even close to doing.

That candidate was Joe Biden, and his blast against GOP presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani is already going into the books as a defining moment in this campaign. In last night's debate, Biden showed, as he has again and again, why it is that ideas, conviction and the courage to lead trump money, endorsements and media fixation, even when - perhaps, especially when - the better financed and better covered candidates are standing just a few feet away.

Biden's quote is being run all over the blogosphere tonight, but it bears repeating here:

“Rudy Giuliani. I mean think about it, Rudy Giuliani, there’s only three things he mentions in a sentence — a noun and a verb and 9/11; I mean, there’s nothing else. There’s nothing else.”

Crushingly brilliant stuff. Here it is on video:

Biden continues to impress in Iowa and had he been alloted the same amount of time as the other candidates, he would have won the debate hands down.

The Democrats have been searching for a candidate who posseses courage and the ability to stand up for what's right and get things done. Biden is the man that will do both and it helps that he is the wisest and most knowledgeable of the bunch.

I hope Iowans wise up to this and caucus for Biden.

Good post, and so true. Biden is heads and shoulders above the rest, but the MSM has largely ignored and underrated him. He'll have my support in the January caucus.

Obama is my man, but Biden is a close second. Love his brash honesty.
