UNEASY RIDER:

Biden isn't afraid of Palin (ABDON M. PALLASCH, 9/10/08, suntimes.com )

Four of the six questions Biden fielded Tuesday night were from donors worried about Palin's popularity which has boosted the Republican ticket's poll numbers over the Democrats. [...]

"The press is exaggerating how white women are all of a sudden for Sarah Palin," Biden said. "We still have more women voting for Barack Obama than for John McCain...Part of the problem is in white suburbia, as well as...among ethnic groups, among, particularly Jews and Catholics, there is a lack of ease about Barack. They don't know him. One of my major jobs is to go out and talk about what I know -- they know me -- talk about who I am, why I support Barack."


Which is why if the Democratic convention were today Mr. Obama would choose a vp who's like the rest of America, not just a standard issue Northern liberal who's his spitting image.

It's also the genius of the Palin pick, allowing women to desert the Democrats for someone they're more at ease with.
