Biden's Foreign Policy Gravitas

Yah, Joe will add lots of FoPo heavy.

Here's Joe in a staff meeting following 9/11:

Biden launches into a stream-of-consciousness monologue about what his [Senate Foreign Relations] committee should be doing, before he finally admits the obvious: "I'm groping here." Then he hits on an idea: America needs to show the Arab world that we're not bent on its destruction. "Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran," Biden declares. He surveys the table with raised eyebrows, a How do ya like that? look on his face. --Michael Crowley, The New Republic, 10/01

Yah, $200mill would go a long way towards buying a couple of nuke-labs.
