Dudes, I’m not endorsing Biden as McCain’s running mate or anything here (crazier things could happen!). But I’ve had normal Americans (i.e. not anyone in New York or D.C.) say they find the guy likable and I thought that appeal was on display this morning. Yes, he was reprehensible with Clarence Thomas. Yes, I disagree with him on so very much. But if this were an American Idol election, Obama-Biden would go over well — and, I’d imagine, would win against a McCain-Graham (especially since such a ticket would drive more than a few on the Right to write in Tancredo!).
