Well, that's pretty much the last nail in the coffin of that whole change thing. I can't imagine a more perfectly cynical choice. I'm not particularly opposed to Biden as a politician, though he does have a gift for putting his foot in his mouth. It's just that he is such a Washington animal, and he hasn't shown himself to be any less craven than the rest of the mainstream Democrats. (Yes, he voted for the Iraq war, in case you're wondering.) It seems the Obama camp is taking a page out of the Bush-Cheney playbook, and compensating for Obama's inexperience with a wily codger who has been a round long enough to be thoroughly compromised. Great. I swear I'd almost rather they'd picked Hillary. I'm convinced she'd be worth more votes than Biden, and they could always sequester Bill in a nice brothel somewhere.
