Saturday Morning VP Rollout
This has been the best veep rollout EVER. . . . [I]s there a better example than this that old media is getting left out in the cold?
Of course, CNN broke the story last night, so, so much for that. But let's stop for a second and think about this - the story breaks in the middle of the night Friday (I found out 30 minutes ago) and the news "frenzy," such at is, begins on a Saturday morning. Hell of a rollout. Not.
Think what you want about Biden, and I think that given Obama's stubborn and wrongheaded unwillingness to pick Hillary Clinton and put a lock on the election, Biden was the best choice politically that Obama was willing to make (imagine the political disaster if he had picked Sebelius). But the rollout of Biden was disastrously bad, unless the idea is to make sure as few people know as possible. Half of the country will not know until Monday when the Convention starts. Obama should have announced Biden last Monday. An F for the Obama campaign on the mechanics of the rollout.
By Big Tent Democrat, speaking for me only
