I was skeptical of the Joe Biden selection, as I hadn't really heard of him and his biography would seem to make it easy to caricature him as another Washington Insider. However, something changed my mind...
My informed, yet distant Argentinian Christmas focus group said the election was going to be about Clinton vs. Giuliani, and that Giuliani would probably win. I suggested the Iowa Democrats might surprise them, but didn't think much on the Republican side.
Yet Giuliani dropped out, and Joe Biden just might have had somehthing to do with it.
