    January 7, 2014 White House: Joe Biden 'one of the leading statesmen of his time' MEGHASHYAM MALI The White House on Tuesday pushed back at criticism from former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates directed at Vice President Joe Biden, saying that President Obama respected and valued the counsel from his number two. “The President disagrees with Secretary Gates' assessment - from his leadership on the Balkans in the Senate, to his efforts to end the war in Iraq, Joe Biden has been one of the leading statesmen of his time, and has helped advance America's leadership in the world,” said...

    In a world where the new "Gilligan's Island" features sexual tension between Mary Ann and Ginger, where "The Longest Yard" remake makes "Platoon" look pleasant, where Nicole Kidman can star in the big screen "Bewitched" even though she can barely wiggle her nose, let us do the world a favor: Let us brook no remake of "The Sound of Music."
