To me, Joe Biden as VP makes a lot of sense for the younger Obama, and his latest overseas trip to Georgia definitely puts him at the top of the list.
(CNN) â€“ When Joe Biden returns to Capitol Hill Monday from his two-day trip to embattled Georgia, vice presidential speculation will rest squarely on him.
The longtime Delaware senator and former presidential candidate has long been considered to be on the shortlist for Barack Obama’s running mate, but his quickly-planned trip to Georgia Saturday night at the behest of that country’s president left Washington buzzing he is the most likely choice.
After all, the Georgia crisis appears to have put national security issues again at the forefront of the presidential campaign, and it’s an issue where John McCain has long held the advantage over Obama. The Illinois senator, so the Beltway chatter goes, needs a running-mate with foreign policy experience now more than ever.
What do you think? Is he the best guy for the job? He’ll certainly be interesting to watch in the Veep debate. The guy has really come into his own over the past 8 years, and he could definitely make the case that he knows how to navigate the halls of power better than most in Washington.
Still, would it undermine Obama’s message of change?
