Does Joe Biden Have a Chance?

With the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan this morning, the debate here at home has turned to foreign policy.  Most of the top tier presidential candidates have scant little experience in foreign matters.  However, one candidate by the name of Joseph Biden  has more than thirty years of foreign policy experience.  That is more than Barack, Hillary, and Edwards combined.

 

 Senator Biden is currently Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and has been on the committee since the 1970's.  He often speaks of the complex situation in Pakistan as he did in this Face the Nation interview. 

 

In a recent presidential debate, Biden spoke of Pakistan and Iran and the differences between the two countries.  Senator Biden correctly pointed out (although nobody was listening) that Pakistan was the greater threat to the safety and security of the United States.  Pakistan already has nuclear weapons and Iran does not.  Pakistan has a more volatile government, while Iran's is somewhat more stable.

 

Biden has also developed a viable plan in Iraq which involves separating the country into three federations that function on their own.  This would allow the Sunni and Shia to focus on their own country and not on killing each other.  It would also take many U.S. soldiers out of harm's way, as their focus would shift to controlling newly established borders.

 

Although Joseph Biden (D-DE) is considered a 'second-tier' candidate in this presidential race, he has been a United States Senator since January 3, 1973.  He was sworn into office at the bedside of his two sons, who were seriously hurt in a car accident that also took his wife and infant daughter.  Only 30 years old at the time, he became the fifth youngest Senator in U.S. history.  Thirty five years later, Joe Biden has distinguished himself as being an expert on international matters.

 

Obama, Clinton, and Edwards have been the frontrunners on the Democratic side of the ledger, but Senator Joe Biden could surprise a lot of folks with a strong showing in the early states.  With only a week to go before the Iowa caucus, he probably will not win, but I do believe he will comfortably exceed expectations and finish a strong fourth.
