But at the same time, I think Biden's arrogant rudeness significantly undercuts Obama's rhetoric that his ticket will work with the opposition party (which of course is an absolute joke, in reality).
When his own VP is sneering away and deriding everything his opponent is saying- regardless of the substance or seriousness of the issue, it begs the question, how are Democrats going to work with Republicans when the Dems obviously aren't willing to listen to a single thing Republicans have to say? The Dems have failed time and time again the last four years... yet, they are obstinately opposed to any new solutions.
