Vice President Joe Biden has accomplished what everybody believed was virtually impossible in this day and age: He has united the Democrats and the Republicans so they’re running in the same direction — away from his comment that the other option to his party’s controlling Congress is what he called the “Republican Tea Party." "I can't imagine any elected official making fun of people becoming highly involved in the electoral process," Tennessee Republican Bob Corker replied when the Huffington Post asked him to comment on Biden's remarks. "I just don't see how that's healthy. And yes, I think people who might criticize people getting highly engaged in the electoral process — I think that's problematic and I just don't understand why one would perceive criticizing that to be a good thing."

"Don't compare me to the Almighty, compare me to the alternative," Biden said according the pool report. "The Republican Tea Party is the alternative."

Democrat Ben Nelson of Nebraska extended this olive branch: "I think there are some fine people who are concerned about the size of the government, concerned about tax structure, concerned about the future. And what we ought to do is have a dialogue."
