So it’s Obama-Biden ’08. With the choice, Barack Obama can be seen as going for experience, especially on foreign policy, and calculating that having a 35-year Senate veteran on the ticket won’t cancel out his “change” message. The highly respected Biden will be a formidable campaigner and debater for the fall and, if the Democrats win, a seasoned, pragmatic presence in the administration. He’s also one of the few members of Congress who is interesting and frank in interviews. Of course, Biden is prone to foot-in-mouth disease, such as that comment in 2006 about Obama being “clean,” and expect to hear more about that plagiarism incident two decades ago. Kansans feeling let down because Gov. Kathleen Sebelius didn’t get the nod can expect her to be high on the list of possible Cabinet members in an Obama White House. In any case, it’s nice to have this bracket of the veepstakes decided at last.
