24. What really captured my attention..
is when Biden said he had his 'Plan for Troop Deployment out of Iraq' sitting in his desk drawer. He had me then as a supporter for a VP slot should Hillary Win the nomination. Now that Cheney has given the VP a more authoritative position, Biden is the perfect Pit Bull for keeping the Neocons in line.
