So the rumor mills are pumping out massive amounts of Biden predictions as Obama's VP choice draws near. First, it's totally smart to announce before the convention because if he didn't, I might mistakenly watch more of the convention. After two weeks of Olympics (the coverage of which largely poos on the West Coast audience by airing after 11pm, but whatever), I just don't know that I can be chained to my TV anymore. Plus the regular season starts soon, and I need to rest up before the premiere of 30 Rock.
And this is a junkie saying she isn't so amped about the Denver do. That should worry my party.
But anyway, back to Biden.
In 1991, I recall really liking Biden as I watched him chair the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings.
Yes, really. If you do the math, I was 12, but I was a highly attentive sixth grader, I assure you.
Since 1991, however, Biden became a pretty raging hawk and I don't dig on war. I'm still bothered by Clinton's pro-war vote. Biden is even more aggressive on the issue than she is. Maybe he's not quite Lieberman, but I wouldn't count on Biden to urge Obama away from, say, invading Iran.
