Obama/Biden '08.

Now that's a ticket I like. Shores up Obama's preceived newness, gives his campaign foreign policy chops, scuttles the Hillary drama, emphasises the campaign's commitment to working class, and lays out the preceived weaknesses of this VP candiate - his support of credit card companies and a vote for the Iraq war - in a way that is manageable.

The netroots are in a ruckus but they would have been with any choice. I want a win in November and this is the team.

Give Biden some good handlers and let him go. He's always kind of been on his own, without a balast. With a solid platform I think he will step up winningly.
