The Biden Rule

Mitch McConnell has been calling his refusal to even consider a nominee "the Biden Rule" because Joe Biden once said that President Bush shouldn't nominate someone during an election year.

He did say that...but in that same speech, he later explained what he meant by that. He didn't mean don't send anyone at all. He meant send someone that is a compromise candidate. Watch the video...

That's exactly what President Obama has done, by the way. He has sent a moderate candidate that has been widely praised by Republicans in the past (and even recommended by Senator Hatch). The exact type of nominee that Joe Biden recommended in the clip above.

Next time you hear someone mention the Biden Rule, keep this video in mind.
