If this American expat is right, the Biden pick may have alienated that 0.16% of the U.S. population. (And more seriously, it’s not welcome news to those of us concerned with America’s position in the Pacific.)
Parenthetically, when it comes to Joe Biden, although the Œcumenical Volgi is no fan of most of his politics, the one time the Notorious ŒV and Sen. Biden were in the same room and even said hello, the Volgi was quite charmed by the man, even if he was rather baffled by the stream-of-consciousness goofiness the senator seemed compelled to emit. I don’t think I could bring myself to vote for him, but if I had to pick a pol to watch a football game with, Biden would be a great choice (I suspect Bill Clinton would be too, as long as Mrs. ŒV wasn’t home).
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
