Biden? Really?

The word that comes to mind is "meh."

Ok, arguably "meh" isn't a word.

So now I've got to do homework on this guy. So far, I've learned that he wants to take convicted drug users out of the prison industrial complex - he thinks they should be in a completely different system. That sounds like a good idea to me. But I've got a lot more learning to do!

I'm not the least surprised that Hillary isn't the VP running mate. I suspect she is biding her time ... waiting for Obama to lose so that she can run against McCain in 2012.

Sigh.

who actually *GASP* thinks Hillary probably wants the Democrats to win because that's the best thing for the country.

It's the safest choice Obama could have made. I'm afraid that two relative newcomers on the same ticket would have been too much for the voting public to stomach.

I honestly think Hillary Clinton has more to gain from a presumptive Obama administration than a McCain administration. If Obama wins, she stands to either become Senate Majority Leader or a high level cabinet appointment. She is young enough that she could easily run again in 2012 or 2016.

I would like the Democrats to win, too, that doesn't mean I think Obama will. I think he has a good chance, but if I - an average Jane - can see that McCain is at an advantage, surely Clinton - a seasoned politician - can see it, too. And I never put it past a smart politician to think strategically. So I don't see it as a diss against her.

You're assuming you're right about that.

I'm not.

who sees both candidates as having significant advantages, but thinks Obama's are considerable.
