So Joe Biden is Barack Obama’s pick for vice president. I like it. A lot. Way back in the early days of this campaign, what seems like at least ten years ago, I thought Joe Biden would have been a really good choice for the presidential nomination. Not necessarily better than Obama, but certainly one of my favorites.
Now Obama has named him as his running mate. I like it. A lot. Hell, I was doing a silly little victory dance in my living room last night when I first heard about it (ask my son; he was here at the time). Of course, at the same time we were marveling that all those talking heads who were reporting the story were right here in Denver. Kinda cool.
Anyway, Joe Biden brings many, many years of military and foreign policy experience to the ticket. Imagine — world knowledge in the White House again! If we can just get this team elected, I’ll sleep soundly again.
