The one thing Obama had going for him was the aura of being a polictical outsider who could bring change to Washington. Now he picks Biden as a running mate, so I can only assume the new campaign slogan will be Obama ’08: Status Quo. Oh and of course hope. There’s always hope. But hope won’t bring gas prices down, lower taxes, better the economy, end wars, create stronger world releations and solve the national debt. And I would like to point out that Biden is part of the status quo Democratic control of congress which collectively did nothing to solve those problems either in the last two years. Am I supposed to believe things will change with a Democratic president, because it’s certainly not like Bush knows where his veto pen is kept.
Welcome to more politics as usual, but watch how the Democrats will lap it up as freshly packaged Change and Hope.
