From CNN Political Producer Alexander Marquardt

NASHUA, New Hampshire (CNN) "” Joe Biden told supporters at a town hall Wednesday afternoon that Barack Obama might have been better off choosing Hillary Clinton as his running mate.

"Make no mistake about this, Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Let's get that straight," Biden said testily when a voter told Biden he was glad the Delaware senator had been chosen and not Clinton.

It might have been an awkward thing for him to say.

But it seems from the CONTEXT - if that's actually important to anyone here - that Biden was graciously and self-deprecatingly defending a friend.

Looks to me like loyalty and humility which - last I checked - are virtues.

Maybe there's more to it. But it seems from the context here that his remarks were in response to one of his own supporters who was bad mouthing Hillary.

That's very different from him saying - absent the context - that Hillary would have made a better VP pick.

So if you want to call it a gaffe call it a gaffe ....

But making more of it than it actually is ... is BS ...
