According to an AP report this morning, Vice President-elect Joe Biden will "oversee a task force" to "make recommendations on how to build the ranks of the middle class."
Hmm. It sounds like President-elect Obama knows that Biden is a loose cannon who can't be trusted with any significant responsibilites, and has decided to give him something harmless to waste time on when not attending state funerals.
Biden: "Hey Barack, what do you have in mind for my role? How are you going to use my superior intelligence and experience? Huh, what've you got for me?"
Obama: "Well, Joe, I've been thinking. I'm creating a task force to, uh, build the middle class, and I want you to head it."
