…our Veep-hopeful is revealed! Senator Joe Biden. Right now I’m watching Barack Obama and Biden’s heartful speeches in Springfield, Illinois, on Al Jazeera online TV. The two of them are bro-ing down, big time. And there’s been at least one vague reference to Langston Hughes. The crowd roars!

What I don’t like about Joe Biden is his “soft-partition” idea for Iraq. Helene Cooper of the New York Times describes it as such: “There would be a loose Kurdistan, a loose Shiastan and a loose Sunnistan, all under a big, if weak, Iraq umbrella.”

Ergo, it’s a fool’s plan.
