Obama picks Joe Biden

Word has leaked that Barack Obama intends to nominate Senator Joseph Biden (D-DE) for the vice-presidential slot on the Democratic ticket. While I obviously wouldn’t like the great majority of Joe Biden’s politics, I will say off hand that he does strike me as genuine, which is a rare commodity these days to be sure [Update:  I can’t believe I said something so stupid.  I beg my readers’ forgiveness.]. A lot of people hate his unpolished demeanor; I find it to be refreshing. Only time will tell if this choice will help Obama make inroads against McCain (Biden has been in the Senate ten years more than McCain and has deep foreign policy credentials) and even with former Hillary supporters who are reticent to get on board.

  1. Biden — the perfect foil for Palin!

  2. Biden may add something to Obama’s foreign policy credentials — so would almost anyone else — but his demeanor is that of a verbal bully more interested in hearing himself talk than in engaging in a conversation, or, during senate hearings, allowing the witness to answer the question. What the dems have is a duo of arrogance. Maybe a lot of Hillary supporters will buy in, but there’s a good reason why Biden was never a top tier presidential candidate the two times he has run.
