In response to the flood of emails I have received since Saturday morning I will tell you this:
Yes, I think Biden is a great choice for Obama. By picking Biden, Obama acknowledges his weaknesses and put someone with experience on the ticket. Senator Biden is very smart, well respected and a recognized foreign policy expert. He is a seasoned campaigner and I expect him to help the Obama Campaign get on track.
Now as someone rooting for the Republican Party, I also like the Biden pick. The Senator from Delaware has a long standing history of saying wildly inappropriate things so I am looking forward to one of these gaffs on the campaign trail. Additionally, I think it is a bad idea to have two people from Congress on the same ticket. Any member of Congress has a history of recorded votes that can be used against them. Senator Biden’s 36 years in Congress gives the political marketers plenty to work with.
All of that being said I don’t underestimate the power of putting Biden on the ticket. He can kick a little butt when he wants to, and I have no doubt he wants to.
Now, I just with the Republican choice for Vice President was so obvious.
