2008-10-19 Joe Biden fundraiser comments
US Vice Presidential then-candidate Joe Biden made comments at a fundraiser on 2008-10-19 warning that Obama, if elected, would experience a serious test of his mettle within 6 months of assuming office.
Some on the political Right have taken this as a statement of intention or threat, rather than a warning of an external threat.
