A day after shooting himself in the foot with remarks about Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Joe Biden is still trying to stop the bleeding.
In an interview on Wednesday, the first official day of his presidential campaign, Biden described Obama as "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." Which raised a lot of eyebrows, and a lot of questions about Biden’s opinion of earlier candidates such as Alan Keyes, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
On "The Daily Show" later that night, Biden tried to control the damage — and succeeded mostly in handing Jon Stewart an arsenal of laugh lines.
