I find Hillary Clinton‚Äôs comment that a vice president is ‚Äúkind of like being a first lady‚Äù as preposterous.
I don‚Äôt know about you, but when I vote for president, I know I am voting for a team. If something happens to the president, his or her spouse will not lead the country, it will be the vice president. I believe a vice president needs to be a statesperson in his (or someday her) own right. Yes, the vice president is part of a team, but he is not there as a cheerleader for the president.
My hat is off to Vice President Joe Biden, who is not afraid to be his own person, no matter if you agree with what he says or not.
When I attended the 10th anniversary at the Flight 93 memorial, it was Biden who touched the observers more than any other politician, which included a couple past presidents. He did that because it was obvious he spoke from his heart even if he fumbles at times with his words.
