As probably everybody knows now, Obama picked Senator Biden as his running mate. As a Delawarean, I’m excited by the pick. It’s not often Delaware makes the news in a positive manner. It just remains to be seen if Biden’s propensity to put his foot in his mouth can be overcome now that he’s got the largest stage of his career.

It still seems wrong to me, at a gut level, that there could be a Vice-President from Delaware. We’ve never had someone in that high a position before. And it seems even more wrong that if there’s a Vice-President Biden, we’ll likely have a Senator Beau Biden. Ugh.
