As expected, VP choice doesn’t matter
Pretty much no one cares that Biden is the VP nominee for Obama. Of those who do, 13% say it makes them “more likely” to vote for Obama and 10% say it makes them “less likely.” Without seeing the internal numbers, my guess is those 13% are mostly already Obama supporting Democrats who think Biden will help and the 10% are McCain supporting Republicans who | Read More »
Joe Biden: Foreign Policy Savant
Other than comedic relief the only possible reason Barack Obama could have for choosing Joe Biden as his running mate (other than the obvious which is to reassure the political center that he will have a babysitter should he be elected president) is his alleged foreign policy expertise. Biden has a long track record in foreign policy that we will explore in the coming days. | Read More »
Biden: A masterful stroke of genius from the Obama camp
With the pick of Joe Biden the Obama campaign has managed to put Delaware into play and all of its Electoral Votes. Biden all but guarantees that Obama will win that state. Wow! I am breathless with the boldness of this move. It will certainly require the McCain campaign to go back and rethink its nominee — someone who could possibly counteract the Joementum that | Read More »

Waitasecond: Obama supporters *weren’t* the first to know?
…which was, by the way, very cool. Anyway: am I really given to understand that this Biden thing got out before the text messaging? :pause: Suckers. Moe Lane PS: My reaction to the news? Last panel.
So much for that text message announcement. Obama really should’ve done it earlier – this afternoon at the latest. All he’s done now is piss off the morning papers by making them miss their deadline, and given the networks a scramble for Saturday morning. How very throwback to think you could avoid the internet attention – but then, they got what they wanted in millions | Read More »
Biden for Veep? Best News I’ve Heard All Summer
Christmas came early this year for John McCain. It came gift-wrapped in the form of Senator Joe Biden the biggest, most pompous windbag in the United States Senate, a man so full of cr*p his speeches bear an awful resemblance to twenty minutes of flatulence preceded by “Good evening ladies and gentlemen,” and followed by “God bless America.”
Obama-Biden ’08: A Clean-Articulate Campaign
The One has chosen. Have U ben txtd yet? I will say again: the reason this has been handled the way it has been handled is because Obama wants to emphasize that he needs no one. There will be no pre-convention campaigning. There will be no major pre-convention promotions. This is all about Obama. Joe’s just there for constitutionally required window dressing P.S. — It’s | Read More »

Joe Biden It Is
A friend who would know tells me Joe Biden is off to the airport and is Illinois bound. I trust the friend, but I’m not sure about his information. Consider this informed speculation and nothing more. I’m perfectly willing to be wrong, but the signs point to yes and, again, the source tends to be right about these things. Honestly, I did not see this | Read More »
The Vice Presidential Nominee
I’m going to call it. Barack Obama’s Vice Presidential nominee will be Tim Kaine, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. I’m perfectly open to being wrong, but I do not think I am. Both Obama and McCain really need someone with executive experience. That rules out Joe Biden, who was raised by the wolves in the Senate. That leaves Evan Bayh, Tim Kaine, and wild | Read More »
