(Senator Joe Biden and the masked Senator Chuck Hagel Make Policy Work Fun on Halloween, October 2007)
This strange little piece just popped up at ABC:
ABC News’ Z. Byron Wolf and Jennifer Parker reports: As Delaware Sen. Joe Biden was leaving his house in Wilmington this afternoon, he slowed down and said to the gathered news reporters outside his home: “Hey guys, I’m not the guy. See ya.”
I don’t think Biden knows any more than the rest of America knows on who will be the next VP. As I suspect below, he has not been called by Obama to say that he is not the choice nor has he been called to say that he is.
But by saying “I’m not the guy,” what is he saying?
Did Biden receive a phone call saying “thanks for playing but not going to work out”? I haven’t been able to confirm that.
Or alternatively, has Biden heard nothing — and thus can say that “I’m not the guy” because he has received no indication that he is? Even though he might be. . .?
I think the latter is the case — but we’ll see.
