Mighty Joe Biden

Nice article on MSNBC about Joe Biden.  Joe is the man!  Too bad he hasn’t had any Joe-menutum.  I fully support his viewpoint on Iraq.  Here is a quote from the sentate floor.

“History suggests only there’s only a couple … ways to keep together a country driven by sectarian strife. And it’s not to put American troops into a city of 6.2 million people to try to quell a civil war. Throughout history four things have worked. You occupy the country for a generation or more. That’s not in our DNA—we’re not the Persian Empire or the British Empire. You install a dictator. Wouldn’t that be the ultimate irony for the United States—to go back after taking one down and install another one? You let them fight it out until one side massacres the other—that’s not an option in that tinderbox part of the world. Or lastly, you make federalism work for the Iraqis. You give them control over the fabric of their daily lives. You separate the parties. You give them breathing room. Let them control their local police, their education, their religion and marriage.”

Joe is the best. I think he should be nominated. If not, I think he would make a great VP or Secratary of State.

I wonder how User Experience Design could help Joe? Why isn’t he more popular? Is it because Obama is black and Clinton is a woman? is it because Edwards is prettier? Joe is just plain vanilla? He should have ran last time. He would have won. I think Joe is in a tough spot. He shouldn’t become “flashy” to get attention, but he needs to get attention.  He needs to steal away women and black voters.  Go right to the heart of it.

Joe, if you can hear me, You have to make a massive appeal to black women.  Propose legislation or come up with a plan that will stop sending young black boys to prison away from their mamas.  Daycare for women on welfare.  A GI Bill with Daycare for women to get computer science degrees.  You have to appeal directly to Black Women.  Obama and Clinton are taking these demographics for granted.  You can steal the stage and become the guy who is really looking out for minorities and women.  You can be the second black president, after Bill C.

I think this would work.  I have no political experience, but my UX skills tell me it will work.

Book Note:  I started reading Huey Long.  Interesting guy.

Whatya think?
