Candidate Biden Comes Clean

With his campaign just off the ground, Sen. Joe Biden spent yesterday explaining his first gaffe of the race: Barack Obama, he told Jason Horowitz of the New York Observer, is “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

Biden ran for for president in 1988, but withdrew from that race under a cloud of accusations that he plagiarized parts of his speeches.

And, speaking of the Observer, it is also worth checking out Matthew Schuerman’s piece on congestion pricing. Congestion pricing – the idea that people should pay more to drive into crowded areas at peak periods of the day – has been adopted in London and on various NYC bridges and tunnels in recent years, but has still yet to be implemented in Manhattan.
