Biden Begin Again

Josh has been posting on the Biden/Obama story for most of the day, and he now has an audio clip of the interview. The argument now is that a bad transcription is the actual culprit here, not Biden's choice of words.

Take a look and listen.

What do you think? Does the "period" change anything? As Lesly pointed out, it does seem rather odd that Biden went from talking about Clinton's policies, and Edwards' policies to how "articulate" and good lookin' that Obama is. (Although later he does say “I don’t recall hearing a word from Barack about a plan or a tactic.”)

Frankly, given Biden's past dancing on the racism tightrope (and an incredibly poor choice of words in this case), I'm not all that ready to say there's nothing to these (Biden's) comments, but some of you may feel differently.
