Do you think an Edwards/Biden ticket would be good?
Edwards is running a very progressive campaign, but still some people think having only one term in the Senate is not enough experience (yeah we had it up to kingdom come with Cheney's experience), but if Edwards wanted to counter that I think Joe Biden would be an interesting VP for him.

He has been in the Senate since '72 and is considered one of the leading voices of the Dem party on foreign policy issues.

Where Edwards hails from the South, Biden represents a small North Atlantic state.

Biden sometimes runs on too much, but like Edwards, he knows how to give a good speech.

What would you think of such a ticket?

5. I like it!
I had hoped for Wesley Clark before he endorsed Hillary, but I would go for Biden as VP or SoS...he'd be great there as well.

6. Also...
What do any of you think about Jim Webb of VA getting tapped for VP? Too soon? I am a real lefty but I really like Webb's plain direct approach to issues. Any thoughts?

7. I like Webb and think he could be a potential president, but yes, I think it would be too soon.

10. Biden Sends the Right Vibes
He gives excellent speeches. A majority of independents can listen to him and say "yeah, I agree with that." Like Bill Clinton, he is able to be attack and still be sunny -- that is a very important quality.

11. I'm cool with that
Sounds like a nice ticket.

Also, Delaware is governed by a Dem, so his seat is safe if he wins.
