Once upon a time there was a youngish guy running for president against a Washington insider. This affable, charming guy was concerned about his foreign policy credentials and so picked a running mate who boasted a distinguished resume and was old enough that, at the end of four-to-eight years, running for president himself seemed improbable. A mentor, a guide. Sound familiar?
Now that we have the pick, kudos to commentators Centfan, vicious maniac and 53_3 — you guys called it right last week!
