They look good together, and Biden looks like he is having the time of his life. I sort of ignored all the babble about the happy warrior last night, but there really might be something to it. they look good together. The other thing is that Biden is a good enough of a speaker that he doesn’t seem completely over-shadowed after hearing Obama. I doubt Kaine and others could have accomplished that.
And I really do not think it can be underestimated how much the beltway boys love Biden. The Matthews/Russert/Imus axis of loudmouth love the guy, and that isn’t a knock on Biden.
*** Update ***
“Which of the seven kitchen tables to sit at…”- Biden is already sticking it to them. The other thing that is great about this is that Biden may be just the right guy to goad the wingnuts and McCain into a volcanic eruption, which will be fun simply for the sheer entertainment value.
*** Update #2 ***
Not sure when this happened, but Chris Matthews and John McCain broke up. Matthews is all pissed off about McCain’s campaign tactics the last few months. He is making Olbermann look positively… non-partisan. From a talking head perspective, Biden is a great choice, it appears.
*** Update #3 ***
Harold Ford, who has not once paused from stepping on the neck of his own party for the past six months, is positively GUSHING about Biden as VP.
