A couple of sentences after making his now-infamous call to “gird your loins,” VP candidate Joe Biden last week compared the president’s work to the Twelve Labors of Hercules. “This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It’s like cleaning the Augean stables, man.”

I admit I kind of like the way he speaks. It’s unusual for a politician.
