Joe Biden, the Shadow President.
Obama shows his insecurity in picking an old white guy who has been in the Senate since the 1970s. The notion that he’d pick someone like Sibelius was window dressing. Hard-core political analysts have always recognized that Obama has been trolling for suckers in the VP Kabuki theatre. For many Democrats, the “great uneasiness” with Obama is relieved. But the choice of Biden does not represent “change you can believe in.” It represents adherence to the established order of things. This will disenchant the changelings and alienate Hillary supporters.
