Would Obama really pick Biden??

According to Intrade, he's the favorite. Admittedly, no one knows their way around warm spit like Joe, but I just don't see how Obama can pick him. Obama is politics 2.0, Joe is plagiarism 101. Obama is cool, Joe is a creep.

Is Obama so succeptible to flattery (Biden famous called him "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy")?

Wasn't Biden in favor of partitioning Iraq?

I really hope Obama goes this way (gridlock, gridlock, rah, rah, rah), but I don't think so. He's not that dumb.

For years now I've used Biden as a cautionary tale to freshmen about the dangers of plagiarism. If Biden becomes the VP candidate, that will mean:

1.) ... the cautionary part is gone, since what am I gonna say? "If you plagiarize, you can't be president, only veep?"

2.) ... it'll look like a partisan snipe, rather than a cautionary tale.

So, here's to hoping he doesn't get it. If he does, I can only pray (in a triumph of hope over experience) that the press makes a big hoohaw about his plagiarism. Even better would be a close loss, with Democrats openly blaming his plagiarism for it!

I thought I was the only one the rooted for a gridlocked government. When they can accomplish nothing, they are miles ahead of where they would be if they could do anything they wanted.
