Kevin Drum and Jonathan Cohn are giving Joe Biden the Veep nod (could Obama be far behind)?

Drum calls Biden “a good choice” and notes, “Big plus here — the press likes him, motormouth or not.”

I’d say, scratch the “or not.” “The press likes him, motormouth.” TNR’s Cohn, in a post titled, “Biden? Yeah, that works,” notes, “you get the feeling that [Biden’s] always on the edge of saying something imprudent. Like I said above, if Biden is the choice, the Obama communications staff will have many anxious moments.”

Political reporters’ favorite sort of moment.
