Biden's Appointment

The President's appointment of Vice President Joe Biden to be in charge of Iraqi policy is good news.   Biden was the only senator who seemed to grasp the realities of that country, and one of the very few able to conceive and articulate a policy direction rooted firmly in them.  His understanding of the implications of Iraq's regional distinctions, not all of them obvious, underscored a clear and intelligent view.   A wise and welcome appointment.
