Biden's latest gaffe illustrates why Obama values the Powell endorsement.
By JAMES TARANTO (Wall Street Journal)

If the prospect of an Obama presidency doesn't make you nervous, Joe Biden's latest comments, reported by ABC News, may change the way you feel:

"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."

"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you--not financially to help him--we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."

As Commentary's Jennifer Rubin notes, this adds up to a pretty good argument for electing a president who is experienced and tough--i.e., John McCain. "This is material for an ad that's a lot more credible than Hillary Clinton's '3 a.m.' ad," observes Rubin. "That one came from his arguably frantic opponent–this one is from his running mate."

Then, IMHO, there will be two. One from abroad and one from within. I believe this election is a sham, that the vote won't matter. It will come down to the Electrol Vote and Obama will get it. Congress has been pushing us towards a Socialist Goverment for awhile, teamed with the Republicans they will force it on us. They see a 3rd Party looming large in the shadows and will try to thwart it.
We will see how many strong Americans are left when the dust settles.

Colin Powell said much the same on Meet the Press

The problems will always be there, and there's going to be a crisis come along in the 21st or 22nd of January that we don't even know about right now.
I haven't heard that one yet. My question is, if we don't even know about it right now, then how does he know it's on the 21st or 22nd of January?
