OK, I’ll make a selection for John Kerry’s running mate (assuming he doesn’t go with my original pick). I nominate Joe Biden. Yes, he’s got the Senator baggage and yes there were those law school missteps (but they say plagiarism is the new journalism). I think he’s got the right mixtures of edge and gravitas and plain-talker and politician. Mostly, I’d just like to see if John McCain could still endorse the Bush/Cheney ticket without bursting into laughter (or tears).
