O Picks Joe
I've met Biden twice and his reputation as a blowhard is well earned. But he is also entertaining, knowledgable on foreign affairs and combative.
He could be a bit of a problem for the hard left. Like John Kerry, Biden supported the war before he was against it. But with the war winding down and troops being withdrawn, they'll be plenty of other things for the Dems to talk about.
Biden is something of loose cannon and a little bit of Joe can go a long way. But overall, Spencerblog thinks his selection is inspired.
Biden isn't exactly "Change You Can Believe In," he's an old Washington hand. But he's probably exactly what Obama needs to balance his own inexperience and thin resume.
Besides, he's smarter than you are. And smarter than he was in 1988.
