No, not what first comes to mind.

Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday night said that former President George W. Bush deserves "a lot of credit" for his handling of the initial Iraq war drawdown.

Speaking to Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert, who conducted a rare serious interview with the vice president, Biden was asked what he would say to Bush as the United States meets a preliminary deadline set by President Obama in 2009 for the withdrawal of combat troops this week.

"Mr. President, thank you," said Biden, addressing a hypothetical Bush. "I've known you for all eight years of your presidency, and I've never known a time when you didn't care."

Asked whether Bush deserves credit for the end of combat operations, Biden said earnestly, "You deserve a lot of credit."


I do have to say, Biden occasionally seems to have some pretty lucid moments.

Look for Obama to spike his kool-aide.
