Biden vs. Cheney

It occurred to me that releasing the current vice president on the networks this weekend in order to land the first punch, so to speak, was only part of the White House's strategy. The larger part was to try and frame this as a battle between Biden and Cheney, rather than Obama and Cheney. Like him or not, EVERYONE listens to Dick Cheney. But NO ONE pays attention to Joe Biden, unless of course they're looking for a laugh. I think they're counting on the interested public hearing Biden's voice and bellowing, "That buffoon! Must not be important," just before they tune the whole debate out. Not a bad strategy actually.
