If the vice president runs, Clinton and other opponents could use his treatment of Anita Hill to erode his support among women and blacks.

Biden presided over the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, blamed for doing little to stop the attacks on Hill and opting not to call three other witnesses who would have echoed Hill's charges of sexual harassment. Biden almost apologetically gave Thomas the benefit of the doubt, critics say, and that stance helped put Thomas on the Supreme Court.

Ever since, for many women and blacks, Hill's name conjures an image of a black woman struggling under attack by a dozen powerful white men asking aggressive questions and questioning her character.

Worse, now that we see Thomas as awful, troglodyte justice that he is, we know Biden may have been able to help block  him.
