Joe Bidden is there to work the Senate to do the White Houses bidding, guy is a serious behind the scenes player with strong ties to Capitol Hill. He was elected to the Senate long before most Slog readers were even conceived. Obama being a relative newcomer to the Senate needs that kind of clout to jam items through the Senate with a 60 vote filibuster proof majority. Keep Joe where he is.

@17 it's nt a suprise, it's misuse of your office. I seem to recall lots of sloggers complaining about the unethical tactics of the Bush Admin, but when one of their own does the same thing (regardless of what side you are on) one should cry foul.
Remember then-Sen. Obama promised us the end of politics as usual? This clearly is politics as usual and it's highly undemocratic. Most everyone here is for gay marriage why don't we encourage putting it up to a democratic vote on the subject instead of stifling it?
