Biden took a jab at Obama Friday night while speaking with reporters.
DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Friday that whoever moves in to the White House in 2009 will be left with so many problems that he or she will be left "with no margin for error."
The senator from Delaware appeared to single out one Democratic opponent–Illinois Sen. Barack Obama–in particular.
"One of the candidates says experience doesn't matter [and to] look at Cheney and Rumsfeld and the rest," Biden said. "Well I say look at the president– he had no experience."
Obama has often said in stump speeches that Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had two of the longest resumes in Washington and it "hasn't worked out so well."
Biden added that the next chief executive will have to end the war in Iraq immediately, keep Iran from erupting into a war, and re-establish the good will and reputation of the United States.
"It's not going to be able to be something that they're going to have time to contemplate," Biden said. "They better pretty well know exactly what they want to do before they take the office."
Biden made the comments to reporters after speaking at the Polk County Democrats Auction and Fall Dinner in Des Moines. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson also spoke to the group.
