Alan Lichtman quotes
The downside of Sarah Palin is that she is entirely unknown. People are going to ask 'Sarah who?' She has never been on the national stage, and we have no idea how she's going to perform in making the enormous jump from the insular world of Alaska politics to the white heat of a national presidential race.
On the minus side, Biden has bombed out twice as a presidential candidate. The first time he ran there were accusations of plagiarism. He can be gaffe prone. But he does bring what Obama needs on this ticket; experience, gravitas and tremendous knowledge in the area of foreign policy.
Foreign policy has been Barack Obama's weakest point. It is Joe Biden's strongest point, of course as chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee. He's also a kind of lunch-bucket Democrat with appeal to the white working class voters that Barack Obama has not really sewn-up yet.
