The LA Times Biden Coverage: Day 1

Sunday, August 24, 2008

The Sunday LA Times has no fewer than three stories on its front page about Joe. One is an exploration of the demographic and strategic considerations that seem to make up Obama's choice of the Delaware Senator as his running mate. Here's a money quote from that piece:
With Biden, Obama hopes to acquire some Scranton cred -- not only in the crucial battleground of Pennsylvania but in other states where Democrats can ill afford to lose working-class support, such as Ohio, Virginia and Florida.
And this--just out of vanity:
Obama aides said they were attracted to the Delaware senator's humble beginnings -- and his relatively modest lifestyle. He has a net worth between $59,000 and $366,000, not much for the millionaire's club known as the Senate.

"He's still one of the poorest members of the Senate," said Anita Dunn, a senior advisor to Obama's campaign. "He came to Washington to do good, not to do well for himself."
Enjoy it while it's nice.
