Readying for Biden, the RNC calls attention to this post by Ben Smith:
A classic Joe Biden ad from 1988, which begins: “The White House isn’t the place to learn how to deal with international crisis, the balance of power, war and peace, and the economic future of the next generation. A President has got to know the territory, but that’s not enough.”
Experience was a major theme of Biden’s pitch in the primary (take the above, and add 20 years), and it’s a contrast they’ll have to aim to avoid if he’s Obama’s running mate.
An inevitable question if Obama picks Biden: Why would the American people want all of the experience and foreign policy knowledge at the bottom of the ticket?
