Biden for Obama's running mate? This has to be a joke

Putting aside the "Obama-Biden" jokes (imagine what Leno and Letterman will say Monday night!), this has to be a joke. Even the mainstream media, which has been fawning over Obama since Super Tuesday, is pointing out that "I'm not an insider" Obama has picked one of the biggest D.C. insiders.

Like Jesse Jackson's manufactured comments to give Obama "racial credibility," could choosing Biden also be contrived? As always, the only question is: why?

The answer: Hillary. She and Bubba are speaking at the convention, and they maneuvered to get her name on a roll-call. This is her opportunity to say, "Our presumptive nominee is faltering in his judgment, but I'm willing to lead you to victory!" Or what if Obama withdraws so Hillary can step in? Imagine dirty tricks behind the scenes, something the Clinton camp discovered that would destroy Obama in a general election, but something they'd rather use in secret. Remember the rumors last November, sparked by Robert Novak, that Hillary's people had dirt on Obama? Waiting to use it for blackmail could explain why "scandalous information," if it does exist, didn't come out earlier.

Self-anointed Hillary, after we all thought she was finished (at least this year), assuming what she always believed was rightfully hers. Hmm. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
