Obama's VP

So, Obama will announce his VP pick tonight, most likely. The conventional wisdom seems to be that he will pick Joe Biden. I do not think that this is a very good idea. It seems to me that this would 1) be an admission of his own lack of experience, particularly in foreign policy, by making it appear that even he knew that he had to balance the ticket; 2) be asking for trouble from all of Biden's past and future gaffes (he's sure to make a few more given this kind of national attention); 3) really hurt Obama's chances with the disaffected youth vot by completely undermining Obama's selling points of change and post-partisanship.

We'll see what happens
