Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Biden says Obama’s plan to raid, kill Osama was an audacious success

Washington - U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is the biggest cheerleader of the president's decision to raid Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan last year and, on Monday, he offered new praise for the choice Obama made.

“You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there,” Biden said at a fundraiser in Morris Township, New Jersey.

“Do any one of you have a doubt that if that raid failed that this guy would be a one-term president?” Biden asked.

Politico quoted him, as saying that Obama “is willing to do the right thing and risk losing.”

Biden said he spends four to six hours a day with the president and watches him make decisions.

“I’m telling you, man, this guy is not only smart as hell, he is absolutely ready to make the decision and stand back and live with it. No whining," the vice president said.

He added: "I literally do get to be the last guy in the room.”
