“Fundamentally, Senator Biden believes that American engagement in the world can make a big difference,” said James P.

"Mr. Obama’s selection ended a two-month search that was conducted almost entirely in secret. It reflected a critical strategic choice by Mr. Obama: To go with a running mate who could reassure voters about gaps in his résumé, rather than to pick someone who could deliver a state or reinforce Mr. Obama’s message of change." This makes the Biden pick about governance, not electability. Now, watch McCain pick Romney, which would be all about electability, not governance.

OH SNAP. It seems like Automattic and Six Apart are getting snippier these days. Honestly, I feel an affinity for the WP side of things, even though I get that MT is a solid product.
