I've Been Thinking:
And Joe Biden it is.
Biden is a safe choice.
Clearly, has loose lips and he admits it. But Biden also has gravitas and that is a quality Obama lacks and Obama needs.
Do not think for a second that this will be a team effort.
Obama is in charge and he needs a number two with a name and experience --- not a partner.
Obama's style of leadership does not lend itself to taking Biden seriously.
Biden will stand tall and to the side of the presidential candidate and be there to deflect some of the serious critique leveled at Obama regarding his inexperience.
But it will be Obama, by himself, who will have to convince the voter in Middle America that he has what it takes to lead America in prosperity and in crisis.
And that's why, bottom line, the choice of Joe Biden as vice president is about as significant as is the state of Delaware.
