Rep. Darrell Issa: Joe Biden must ‘stay engaged’ after leaving office

President Obama has said he’ll stay out of the day-to-day scrum in Washington once he vacates the White House, but a top Republican in Congress hopes the president’s second in command sticks around and works to facilitate deals between the two political parties.

Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican, said Vice President Joseph R. Biden can play a critical role in finding bipartisan solutions on health care and a host of other issues, even after Donald Trump assumes the presidency.

“My friend Joe Biden needs to stay engaged. He’s going to leave the office, but he says he’s going to stay engaged — be able to drive his Corvette, but be engaged,” Mr. Issa told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “He’s been a deal-doer for a long time, and I think he’s freed up now as a senior statesman to be involved with us.”
