Campaign video suggests Biden can lead U.S. out of Iraq

(CNN) - Sen. Joe Biden, D-Delaware, can lead American out Iraq. That's what his campaign video suggests.

"What if President Bush told you that the only way to get out of the hole was to dig deeper?" Biden's video asks.

Apparently that's a rhetorical question. The ad then touts Senator Biden as the only man with a concrete an to lead American out of Iraq.

The ad finished with a splash of white light and a black and white photo of the Senator trying to look his most presidential.

Biden has consistently stated that he's the only democrat with an actual plan for troop redeployment and argues he has the foreign policy credentials – he's chair of the Senate Foreign Relations committee – to enact his plan.

    All of Biden's answers are more sensible and more clear than the other candidates. I'm tired of the cyclical do-nothing, empty, morale-touting answers of the other candidates.

    The last thing this country needs is another dream-weaving, slippery political personality. The "frontrunners" are the least coherent (not that ALL the candidates with less money are great leaders).

    The clarity-gap between Joe Biden and ALL the other candidates is colossal.
    Unfortunately, he seems to share the sense that even though he is the most fit to lead on all the issues, particularly foreign relations, he doesn't stand a chance among these senseless, hypocrite, money-bag candidates and their American empty personality-machine

    I agree. Senator Biden, with his wide range of experience and knowledge of foreign relations has been given the cold shoulder by media in favor of the insincere and inexperienced "rock star" candidates, Clinton and Obama. I was disgusted with Anderson Cooper's repeated querying of the same two candidates much of the evening. I think I recall Senator Biden being called on twice, maybe three times. When he was making his stance on his plan for Iraq, he was called time twice. All of which he says makes sense and it's sure about time that the media gives equal time to all the candidates now, it's not like they are purchasing the coverage, it's a free gift for frontrunners. Actually, I've been fed up with the media for quite some time now, especially in regard to this upcoming election. It's sad that the media gets to pick the next president.

    biden won this debate, is the clearest and most straight forward of the candidates, and i believe put himself firmly in 3rd behind clinton and obama. he has the experience, intelligence, and debating skills to win this, and i think he will be the eventual nominee, and next president.
