  •  Biden was ready (4+ / 0-)

    Biden made it clear he was available to come vote if his vote was needed.  The whip-count showed they weren't going to win anyhow, so he was given a pass.  I'm pretty sure he would have been a yes vote, though, because Delaware has UAW plants, and Biden is a working-class guy.

    •  Ah, got it...still, he probably should've shown.. (3+ / 0-)

      ...up and voted YES anyway, as a symbolic act of solidarity if nothing else. It's just a train ride away, as he knows all too well...

      Which reminds me: Why the hell can't Kerry/etc vote REMOTELY via live satellite or telephone or something, as long as their identity is confirmed?? Why on earth, in 2008, are we allowed to vote absentee but the very people we elect aren't allowed to do so??
