Opening Arguments


Vice President Joe Biden, on the importance of brevity:

"And so language, the ability not only to master the ability to put your ideas into words succinctly on a platform to communicate ideas to your own people, it is even more impressive when you have the capacity to do that and communicate your ideas, especially as future business and political and moral leaders of the world in the language of the people to whom you are speaking."

Ah, succinctly on a platform. Couldn't have said it better myself.

Just the mention of Joe Biden gives me a chuckle. I have to believe he was mentored by Professor Irwin Corey.

I like Biden, but putting his name in the same sentence with "brevity" is like asking Sarah Palin about erudition.

Would that mean that Joe has become the world's greatest authority, Tim?
