Interesting pick; certainly not the "Change" pick. Power Line runs down many
of the known problems and goofball statements he's made. This one certainly raised an eyebrow:
Crowley's TNR profile concludes with a striking example of Biden's foreign policy sophistication. In the wake of 9/11, in a meeting with his staff, Biden experienced an epiphany:
Biden launches into a stream-of-consciousness monologue about what his [Senate Foreign Relations] committee should be doing, before he finally admits the obvious: "I'm groping here." Then he hits on an idea: America needs to show the Arab world that we're not bent on its destruction. "Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran," Biden declares. He surveys the table with raised eyebrows, a How do ya like that? look on his face.
One obvious criticism of the pick is that it leaves the women dangling. Their historic moment didn't come, and they didn't even get the Miss Congeniality award.
