Biden Waits on the Sidelines

Vice President Joe Biden "walked the halls of Congress and hosted top-level talks at Blair House during the last fiscal showdown. This time, he's roaming the aisles of Costco," Politico notes.

"It's a stark shift in responsibilities for the vice president, who has been asked to hold off -- for now -- on leveraging his Capitol Hill connections and to leave the negotiating to his boss."

"Biden's new role is a product of President Barack Obama's decision to streamline fiscal cliff negotiations between himself and House Speaker John Boehner, the two sides' clear sticking points and Obama's increased post-election political clout."
