Biden Time

For what it's worth, count us deflated but willing to be persuaded by Barack Obama's choice of Joe Biden for a running mate. As Gawker says, sometimes he can come off like a hilarious blowhard.

But don't take Gawker's word for it. Take ours. Some years ago, we had the opportunity to spend some one-on-one time with Joe Biden during one of the many Iowa caucus seasons when he was running for president and almost no one was noticing. Joe Biden is a very nice guy and a terrific father but that night, at least, he seemed burdened by a woolly brain and an untrained tongue.

Want a dad? He is your man, hands down. Want a vice president? Frankly, based on that one experience we think Hillary looks like George Washington in comparison.

On the other hand, everyone can have an off night. Besides, John McSame can be counted on to make a worse choice.
