Ryan Lizza: Biden’s Prime Strategy Is Link Himself with Barack Obama

‘He’s going to play that card until he can’t play it anymore’


LIZZA: “Absolutely. What did they do tonight? He has four people running his campaign. The news of his speech tonight in Davenport was that while all the Democrats last weekend were at that cattle call getting five minutes a piece to talk to the democratic activists in Iowa and Biden was getting a little bit off heat for not being there. Not only was he at his granddaughter’s graduation but his best friend is Obama’s daughter and the Obama's and the Biden's hung out together and had this wonderful families meeting together. He just casually dropped that in his speech and said please don’t criticize me for hanging with the Obamas. He's going to play that card until he can’t play it anymore. It’s a very powerful card in democratic Politics.”
