The "Hope and Change" promised by Barack Obama and Joe Biden in 2008 "didn't happen," according to none other than Biden himself.
Speaking at the annual gathering of Generation Progress, the youth-focused wing of the liberal Center for American Progress, Biden acknowledged that the true change attempted by the Obama ticket hadn't occurred.
"Everybody says because we tried in '08 and it didn't happen, it's not possible," Biden said. "Wrong. We've gone through these periods before … Folks, this is totally within our power. Change for the better is absolutely possible, and I believe it's close to inevitable if you're the drivers of it."
