Biden Boasts Of Experience

Delaware Democratic senator Joe Biden, who has been in office since 1972 and is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations, boasts of his experience:

"Being president is not the same thing as running for president," he says in the spot.

He then goes on to say that the squabbling about "experience" and "change," which has consumed the campaigns of the leading Democrats -- Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards -- is about meaningless political slogans.

[. . .]

"You don't have to guess what I'll do as president," he says in the ad. "Just look at what I've done."

With his new ad, Biden becomes the last of the six Democratic campaigns in Iowa to advertise on TV. I fear it's too little, much too late.
