Biden Time

  • Unforced error: Whatever Hunter Biden’s gas-company board work in Ukraine involved, this much is clear. He shouldn’t have been there—of all places—doing it. The money was good, the optics were bad, the ethics questionable. It’s yet another example of a family member trading on the name of those who came before them. Down deep, Ivanka might even agree. Not. But if Joe Biden is the nominee and pushes the “quid pro quo” Ukrainian probe, count on a sneering, base-pleasing “quid pro Joe” pushback.
  • When it comes to quotes, Biden has, as we well know, a “greatest gaffe hits” track record. Here’s a memorable one that, in effect, ended his 2008 presidential run. He referred to then-candidate Barack Obama as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” Some compliments are more complimentary than others.
