When Sen. Obama selected Sen. Biden to be his running mate, part of the reason that we were given was that Sen. Obama wanted someone who didn’t necessarily agree with him. I doubt he thought that his running mate would be questioning campaign decisions on national media.
First, Sen. Biden suggested that the ad attacking Sen. McCain as out of touch because he didn’t use the Internet was “terrible”—because of Sen. McCain’s war injuries. That was right before he changed his mind and called the attacks fair.
Now, Sen. Biden is on the record of agreeing with Sen. McCain about the bailout of AiG, when his boss-to-be is on the record as saying that was the wrong decision.
Add onto this the conversation the guy’s had in recent days wondering if he was the right nominee—he suggested Sen. Clinton might have been a better choice—and other gaffes, and it’s almost like they’re trying to create an excuse why this guy has to go.
And yet, I almost admire him for what he’s going through. Unlike what I believe the McCain camp has tried to do to Gov. Palin, this man is actually saying what he thinks and believes. That’s strange, coming from a politician.
Oh, and what do you think of the Electoral College “doomsday” scenario? I would find that really interesting.
