Joe Biden says Sen. John McCain isn't a maverick, instead he's President Bush's "sidekick".
Barack Obama's running mate ridiculed McCain during an appearance at the University of South Florida Wednesday.
He said McCain is "an angry man, lurching from one position to
another" and making ugly attacks against Obama instead of offering solutions to a troubled country.
The Delaware senator said McCain is trying to distract voters from his support for President Bush's policies. He repeated Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey's line, "You can't call yourself a maverick when all you've ever been is a sidekick."
