On Politics: Inside the Obama-Biden Relationship

Good Monday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today.

_____________________

What started out as a Felix-and-Oscar odd couple — a no-drama intellectual and a gregarious, shoulder-squeezing pol — evolved into a surprisingly close friendship unlike any between a president and vice president in modern times. This is the story behind the relationship between Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Despite doubts about his candidacy, Mr. Biden begins the race with substantial support from three key constituencies in his native state of Pennsylvania: suburban moderates defecting from the Republican Party under President Trump, black voters who were underwhelmed by Hillary Clinton, and working-class white voters.

Attorney General William P. Barr and congressional Democrats clashed on Sunday over his scheduled testimony before the House Judiciary Committee this week, with Mr. Barr threatening to skip the session and the panel’s chairman threatening to subpoena him.

As House Democrats return to Washington after a two-week recess, they will find a Capitol consumed by the Mueller report. But rank-and-file Democrats are not being propelled by their constituents into impeaching the…

Betsy DeVos Suggests That Bribing Colleges Helps Students Learn Math

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Offering an upbeat assessment of the headline-grabbing college-admissions scandal, Betsy DeVos said on Thursday that bribing colleges gave students “a really neat opportunity” to learn math.

The Secretary of Education suggested that, rather than keeping children in the dark about the bribes that enable their college acceptances, “Parents should sit around the kitchen table with their kids and work…

‘He gave me permission’: Joe Biden jokes about touching complaints

Joe Biden on Friday twice made joking references to complaints from women that his physical behavior made them uncomfortable.

The former vice-president’s comments came during his first public appearance since the allegations began to surface last week.

Taking the stage in Washington at a gathering of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Biden was introduced by the president of the union, Lonnie Stephenson.

Biden quipped: “I just want you to know – I had permission to hug Lonnie.”

The crowd, which was mostly male, erupted in laughter. Later, Biden made a similar joke after inviting a group of children onstage and putting his arm round a young boy.

“By the way, he gave me permission to touch him,” the former vice-president said, again to laughter.

“Everybody knows I like kids more than people,” Biden said.

‘Sleep walking into disaster’: readers on the indicative votes

Theresa May in Downing Street on Monday

‘Make your minds up’

Brexit day has gone. Parliament can’t agree on its ideas now it’s in charge and the government can’t get its deal through again and again and again. What a pickle. Just Remain as we were, we had a great deal, perfect for our particularities. Just Revoke. Stop this nonsense. Or… give us a vote. Or… agree on a some sort of customs union and single market deal. Or… completely smash the nation with a no-deal real Brexit by 12 April. But make your minds up. jeekelemental

‘Sleep walking into disaster’

Sleep walking into disaster. Completely self-absorbed MPs have proven time and time again that they are not qualified to pull off something as complicated as Brexit. And if they are not lacking competence then they are acting with complete contempt for the people of Britain, as long as the deadline looms. FromEveryAngle

‘Time to pass the ball to some other sucker’

How does Theresa May not just step down and walk away from this mess? She didn’t call the referendum and she obviously isn’t getting any help implementing the shocking result. Sort of feels like she’s tried enough and it’s time to pass the ball to some other sucker. It’s painfully obvious that what really should happen is a general election and each party can craft their own platform on Brexit including whether to cancel the whole thing, and let the people vote. Skippy67

‘Put the decision back to the people’

We have a ‘moment in time’ narrow division of opinion which has been hijacked by powerful people for their own vested interests. Online and on the streets the voice of those who actually want to leave the EU is barely audible above that of…
