If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I am a Joe Biden fan. I think I may have realized part of the reason why, following a discussion with some friends about Barack Obama's VP choice. Mrs Duck said Biden is a lot like me, he says whatever he feels like saying.

Now, that may not be totally true, since Mrs Duck has been known to turn a curse phrase or two, there is parts of that statement that is correct. One of Joe Biden's strongest attributes, and also possibly one of his weaknesses, is the fact that he says what is on his mind and says it in a way that at times, you do not need one of those public relations gurus to explain what the hell he means.

Which is just what the Presidency run of Barack Obama needs. Obama has a great way with words, but he has not had an attack dog by his side. Biden can fit that bill perfectly. And even though his political intelligence is unquestioned, or at least his experience in DC would be, the attack dog is what the Senator of Delaware brings to the campaign.

Plus the whole Delaware thing is a plus.
