Joe Biden
While Biden is not a dazzling pick, the party elders who are beginning to gather for their nominating convention in Denver consider him a solid one. Andy Stern, president of the two-million member Service Employees International Union, says Biden could help enormously in reaching "the people in our union who are skeptical about Barack Obama."
"Joe's about as good a messenger as we can get to those groups," Rendell says. "And once you've got a good messenger, the issues cut in our favor."
"There's only three things he mentions in a sentence: a noun, a verb and 9/11." Democrats realize that with Biden, they are likely to see some occasional errant punches. "I hope so," says one Obama adviser. "Because that will mean he is swinging."
