Biden: Pelosi “A Lightning Rod”

VP has high praise for Speaker on Larry King, but says the GOP has made her into a polarizing figure.

Joe Biden on Sarah Palin:

“As a Republican political leader, I would look and say, ‘Wait, she has a good chance to get the nomination’… She is an appealing person.”

On Nancy Pelosi:

“I think she’s a very, very effective and competent person. She gets things done. And it’s easy to – you know, in this environment, to characterize someone.”

“I think that’s the case with almost all great leaders. People either liked Ronald Reagan or didn’t like him. They liked George Bush or didn’t. They liked Bill Clinton or didn’t.”

“When you spend… $65 million to make someone a lightning rod, it works.”

Jill Biden on Michelle Obama:

“We really like one another. And I think from the very beginning, when we got together, I think, you know, fate brought us together. And she had her projects that she was interested in and I had mine, but the one thing that we came together [on] was military families. And so, that’s what we’re working on together and we have a lot of fun together.”
