No to Joe

I agree with Digby - please no Joe Biden. I understand why people get sucked into thinking he's all that - when he's on, he's on. He'll get going on a good rant, throw in a few smart things, and suddenly you're wondering why Biden isn't in charge of everything. But, then, somehow there's never any follow-up. In fact, a few days later you'll see him chastizing his fellow colleagues for, say, being mean to that nice ol' Ashcroft.

Remember that time Biden courageously took the lead on an issue?

Me neither.

He seems to appeal to those Democrats who worry that we're all just a bunch of wimps and like it when someone starts talking about blowing shit up and killing people.
