It's Biden!
« on: August 23, 2008, 07:42:04 AM »
Haven't read much about the strategy behind choosing from the VP candidates, but I've always liked Biden.  He has very good international and business credentials.  Plus he takes the train, not some fancy town car,  between Delaware and DC (seen with me own eyes) - he's hardhat.

I'm pretty happy about this choice.  Biden's an old fashioned east coast pol who balances Obama's shortcomings with more right-leaning Democrats like me.   While everyone was looking at the Clinton-Obama show in the debates, I was really impressed by Biden's grasp of the issues and his understanding of the situation in Iraq. He's also plenty tough enough to be Barack Obama's attack dog down the stretch.  Let's just hope he doesn't say anything stupid along the way.

Yeah, hardhat is right - Biden is the man. I've always liked him, but seeing him in the debates this election was better than ever. He's smart and savvy as hell, and about as no-nonsense as it gets. I couldn't be happier with Obama's choice.
I'm warning you with peace and love.

He also pushed for "his friend" McCain to run on a "fusion ballot" with Kerry in 2004.

All things considered, it was a better selection than Kerry's eventual choice.

The best thing about Biden's verbal blunders is that the Republicans are the last people to be criticizing someone for not being PC.

Thumbs up to Biden. I'm just go glad he didn't pick some nobody governor in hopes that he could carry one measly battleground state.

I saw VA Gov Kaine talk recently and was very impressed.  Man to watch!

is this thing still going on?  i thought we'd already have a new president by now.

obama could have picked axl rose as his running mate and i still wouldn't vote for him.  john mccain is older, more experienced and also a war hero.

Plus he owns ten homes, and doesn't even know about 4 or 5 of them. He's a walking abundance of riches!

I'll vote for McCain if he gives me one of his houses that he can't remember. His wife will probably be able to dig up the address and the keys and the deed to it and all that stuff ... Maybe the wifey can also give me one of her private planes she got from Anheuser-Busch. And a couple cases of beer to sweeten the deal.

If McCain wins, will he be able to remember that he has a new house on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
