Still don't quite understand why Biden doesn't run against Hillary. Is there some dark planet force at work? http://t.co/qs0unNmUTH

@kausmickey Why Biden might not want to run: Age, fear of being three-time presidential loser and lack of policy differences with Hillary.

@mrwaltershapiro Seem like insufficient reasons. He'd have fun. He cld win. And you don't think he thinks he'd be better Prez (true or not)?

@kausmickey One other thing to remember about Biden -- he has a visceral memory of 2008 when he was broke and Obama and Hillary ruled TV.

@richardmskinner @kausmickey Polls and observation point up Hillary's popularity with Democratic base. Media more bored than Dem voters.

.@MrWalterShapiro: Kaus' business model is to write about things but not actually try to solve them. *Not* stopping amnesty makes him money.

I spent most of my twenties hoping that Lauren Bacall would knock on my door and ask if I had a light. Nada. But that's why I'm not Bogart.

@JohnJHarwood I was married in my thirties and didn't think that my continuing Lauren Bacall fantasies needed to be shared with the group.
