JOE BIDEN — BARACK OBAMA ISN’T READY TO BE PRESIDENT.

And, what is more, “The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.”
So Obama goes with Joe “I wish I’d said that” Biden. The insufferable self-regard of this ticket is going to set some sort of record, even among self-obsessed politicians. Have we ever had two candidates who so love to hear themselves talk?
The irony of this choice, of course, is that what Obama just did is pick his own version of Dick Cheney. For some reason, Obama can’t stop himself from obsessively trash talking Cheney. Perhaps there’s something about a man of actual substance and accomplishment that just rubs Obama the wrong way. And right there is the key difference between Cheney and Biden. Cheney has a long career of actually doing things which gives him a place in American history. While Biden is mostly just a pompous ass.
