Doing his best Elizabeth Warren impersonation, Vice President Joe Biden delivered “populist” remarks at a “closed-door fundraiser” in South Carolina yesterday. One attendee described Biden’s speech as “a preacher delivering a sermon.”
What was the Veep so excited about? Slamming the Clintons from the left on income inequality! CNN’s Peter Hamby reports:
“[S]everal Democrats at the event were struck by one remark he made about Bill Clinton’s presidency: Three sources there told CNN that Biden said the fraying of middle-class economic security did not begin during President George W. Bush’s terms, but earlier, in the “later years of the Clinton administration.” Biden, of course, could face off against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016 if they both decide to run.”
Another classic Bidenism, or JB previewing a lefty critique of Clinton ahead of a 2016 primary?
