How bad was smirkin’ Joe Biden? He even lost Martha Raddatz
Of course Raddatz could have reined in Smirkin’ Joe Biden and didn’t. It’s also something of a stretch to say he’s totally lost her. Still, after everything, seeing the criticism coming from her is priceless. Imagine how hard she’d be were Biden a non-insider, non-DC Republican.
But one of the things I think Joe Biden did was in that intimate — in that little intimate table, it was very small, he was too big. He was like he was at a campaign event. So you could even — you could feel that, especially at that table, that — that Joe Biden was so aggressive. So there were surprises there. I was surprised at Paul Ryan, that he didn’t jump in more, but that was clearly the strategy. But when you walk off, you’re not quite sure how it went.
