The problems with Biden

The challenges Barack Obama will find in campaigning with his vice-presidential pick are detailed here. Briefly, there is his track record of plagiarism; his tendency to bloviate; and his almost humorously proclivity for gaffes (praising Obama as a black man who is “clean”; bragging about how high his IQ is; etc.).

    He makes me think of Rumsfeld’s known unknowns. People may know his face and recognize the name, but inattentive voters (which I’m led to believe are legion) probably don’t know him.
    I’ve hear he was chosen as an appeal to white men.
    My liberal/feminist/Democrat siblings are starting to recall how much they’ve ‘always liked the guy.’

    What has Biden said in the past about Christians and pro-lifers? It might be beneficial to collect his sayings on such matters and make them public.

    What has struck me is the visual impact of Obama and Biden together. Obama seems to be dwarfed by the larger-than-life, photogenic Biden. Maybe no one else has noticed this? If true, then the ever-important element of symbolism that characterizes Obama’s campaign could take a hit.

    So far, there hasn’t been the usual bounce in the polls normally associated with the naming of a veep. Again, no one knows what to make of it.
