Biden Does His Homework: World Testing To Occur During Obama's Freshman Year

Children and Senator Joe Biden can say the darnedest things. Sometimes they are profound. Here's the latest from Joe, courtesy of ABC News:

"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

Uh, Joe, I think I would rather vote for the guy who won't provoke an international crisis. And when it comes to world testing, no copying answers from Neal Kinnock will be allowed.

Update: Hotair posts on Biden's "world testing" comment with the following definition of his chief attribute (and perhaps the reason Powell endorsed him):

Gaffe (n): The accidental act of a politician telling the truth.
