7. Not exactly

Biden was seen as balancing Obama's lack of experience (especially in foreign policy).

Clinton/Gore were more two peas in a pod, but that was in part a strategy to hold on to some of the South, which the Dems needed to do then. We don't really need any help holding onto New England.

I'm not saying Bernie needs a DLC type on the ticket -- God forbid. But he could do with other kinds of balance -- a foreign policy maven, a non-Northeasterner, a DC outsider, someone not of age to collect full social security, someone non-white...something. The House Progressive Caucus is probably the best place to look.
