As we all know, Joe Biden will be selecting a running mate shortly, and one Democratic insider yesterday commented off the record:
“I have no idea what Joe is thinking of with the possible running mates he’s considering. Everyone on the list has some major shortcoming, ranging from their saying some too-nice things about Scientology and Castro’s Cuba, to their writing some pathetic romance novels that would provide lots of fodder for Saturday Night Live. A couple of them make Sarah Palin look presidential, and that’s scary. They’re all whackadoodles that will piss off one constituency or another, and if he does gets elected, every one of them will be scheming to get him removed from office, even though that would happen soon enough without their help.
The poor guy doesn’t remember, but, just a short time ago, he had a perfect solution when he agreed to select his wife as his vice president. She’s as qualified as anyone, and say what you will, no one hates Jill. Anyone else is gonna cost him half his lead over Trump, and that’s before he or his running mate open their mouths.”
When asked who he thinks the running mate will be, the insider responded:
“I don’t know; it all comes to down to whom he talks to last.”
