Obama-Biden ’08: My cup of tea

2 thoughts on “Obama-Biden ’08: My cup of tea”

  1. Obama’s favorite attack line: “John McCain has been in Washington for too long. He is out of touch with working Americans. It’s time to bring change to Washington.”

    I guess he can’t use this cliche anymore, especially with a 37-year veteran of Washington by his side. Furthermore, Biden was a strong critic of Obama and his inexperience from the start. All those soundbites will come back to haunt Obama and Biden.

    Obama would have been better off with either Hillary Clinton or Tim Kaine. Hillary would help him with the woman’s vote. Tim Kaine would help re-enforce his “change” message as well as putting Virginia solidly under D column. He went against his instincts by picking a supposedly “safe” choice. Let not forget that Biden is a gaffe machine. Remember the “sniper” gate that doomed Clinton and the “bitter” gate that almost doomed Obama. I guess we’ll have to wait to see.
    I wouldn’t presume to know what Obama’s instincts were in regard to his veep selection. Picking an older running mate with extensive foreign policy experience who is well liked, well known, “works well with others,” Catholic, and very popular in Pennsylvania, strikes me as sensible.

... and that's my two cents
