Biden Enters Race With Attention

Sen. Joe Biden started his second campaign for White House this week with plenty of attention, just not the kind a newly announced candidate would want.

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man," Biden said about Illinois Senator Barak Obama.

This comment has come under fire by many people including 2004 Democratic Presidential hopeful Al Sharpton, who told Biden:

"A lot of people took it from you that because (Obama) is Harvard-trained, that people don't see someone as good and clean unless they are less connected to the struggle of the African-American community. George Allen got 'macaca' - this might be a step past that."

Biden won 2.94% in the Conservative President 2008 December poll.
