VICE President Joe Biden is seen as the man who created the breakthrough in the debt ceiling talks with the Republican Party.
Biden, the Irish American vice president, had a lengthy Senate career before taking up his present job, and has maintained close contacts with former colleagues on both sides.
And he's right.
Maureen Dowd compares Obama to Jimmy Carter today in her Sunday New York Times column, clearly overwhelmed by the job, bowing to Republican demands at every turn, out of his depth.
CNN have a major issue on their hands with the surfacing of an old interview with Larry King's replacement, Piers Morgan, in which he admits phone hacking went on during his time as editor of the Daily Mirror in England.
He edited both News of the World and then Daily Mirror from 1994 to 2004.
The London-based Daily Telegraph this morning publishes extracts from that interview which stand in dire contrast to Morgan's earlier outraged comments that he never involved himself in such things.
Speaking on the O'Reilly Factor Bill O' stated;

As the largest party their winner will automatically be favorite to become the next president
It was neck and neck with Mairead McGuinness and Gay Mitchell both European MPS facing off against Pat Cox,former president of the European Parliament.
This is the most bizarre story I have read in a long time in an Irish newspaper.
A man was before Limerick District Court after his Alsatian dog had sex with a 43-year-old woman. The woman later died from an allergic reaction. The incident happened in 2008 and the dog has been held in custody since.
Casey Anthony was found innocent -- get used to it.
We can argue the toss all we like but a jury of her peers sat for months and weighed all the evidence and found there was not enough to convict.
This was no OJ Simpson runaway jury, they took their responsibilities very seriously.
Palin was the anointed one. I felt she had a real shot at the Republican nomination, but along comes Bachmann to queer the pitch.
Bachmann is a smart cookie too and the alleged gaffes the media are trying to foist on her are of no consequence.
