Zsa Zsa thinks Biden Should Resign

Zsa Zsa Huffington  has taken to advising the VP on the war in Afghanistan.  Her advice to Biden is priceless, she believes he should resign in protest if Obama decides to escalate the war:
Being Greek, I'm partial to Biden's classic use of the Socratic method -- skillfully eliciting facts in a way that lets people connect the dots that show how misguided our involvement in Afghanistan has become.

It's been known for a while that Biden has been on the other side of McChrystal's desire for a big escalation of our forces there -- the New York Times reported last month that he has "deep reservations" about it. So if the president does decide to escalate, Biden, for the good of the country, should escalate his willingness to act on those reservations.
Am I the only one who gets whiplash following Arianna's train of thought?  Hilarity ensues right from the outset with this one.   Biden's use of the socratic method?  Oh my, but wait there's more:

Obama may be no drama, but Biden loves drama. And what could more dramatic than resigning the vice presidency on principle? And what principle could be more honorable than refusing to go along with a policy of unnecessarily risking American blood and treasure -- and America's national security? Now that would be a Whisky Tango Foxtrot moment for the McChrystal crowd -- one that would be a lot more significant than some lame, after-the-fact apology delivered in a too-late-to-matter book.
 Here's a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot moment for Arianna.  Didn't the President run on the premise the war in  Iraq distracted from the real war that needed to be finished in Afghanistan?  Didn't her "news" organization tout this President's every thought and word that would surely lead to healing planets and parting seas etc?   Now Biden, who agreed to be the running mate of a man who made this claim at every single stop across the country in the campaign, should suddenly turn around and resign in protest if the President ever manages to follow through on his promise to finish the job in Afghanistan.  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot indeed.
