In reviewing Obama's selection of Joe Biden as his vice-president, reasonable people should examine that selection under the same criteria as McCain's pick of Sarah Palin. First, did Obama select Biden as the best person to be a "heart-beat away from the Presidency"? Well, I've never heard of anyone making that claim, as Biden was clearly chosen solely for the purpose of shoring up Obama woeful lack of experience and judgment in dealing with issues of foreign relations and national security. For anyone to suggest otherwise would run up against one stark and compelling fact: The Democrat Party rejected Senator Joe Biden as being of presidential caliber - he received only 1% of the vote in Iowa, and he apparently agreed with that evaluation because he immediately withdrew from the race. How did the selection of a white-haired white male Washington insider with 32-years in Congress relate to Obama's campaign pledge of "no more politics as usual"? It doesn't!

this is a blog but it's interesting....and even a blog can be checked to see if what the person writing is indeed factual.............
and no different than posting from the huffington post IMO...where one can also read it and research the material and come to their own conclusions.....

I understand the premise, but it seem to be a big difference in the 2 right now..time will tell if there is...Biden at this point, on the surface seem to be more prepared to take over the presidency than palin, but again time will tell.

Much can be debated if Palin is better prepared than Biden to be POTUS, but we cannot overlook the fact that Palin is more prepared than the Dem front runner Obama to be POTUS. When you look at it that way, all else seems moot.

Wow. You guys would attack him no matter what he does.

You say the guy is inexperienced and has no foreign relations experience to draw on so he picks a guy who knows how Washington works with decades of experience including numerous runs for the presidency and is head of the foreign relations committee to quell that argument. And you find an article attacking him for shoring up deficiencies? So you think he should have maintained that lack of experience with more inexperience?

Theres nothing Obama can do about having a perceived lack of experience. So what does he do? He goes out and does the best thing for this country, were he to be elected and picks a guy with about as much experience as one can have in Washington. And he gets attacked for it.
