He could have been a contender

Everybody is talking about Hillary's speech today but Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer was just as good, and in some ways better.

I can see now why so many people were hoping he would get the VP nod. I think he might well have been better than Biden, except of course he doesn't have Biden's foreign policy creds which I'm guessing the Obama camp thought was more important in the long run.

Meanwhile, in case you somehow missed it, Hillary Clinton's speech is here and a lot of people liked Kucinich. His is pretty short.

And Anonymous Liberal does make a good point. More thoughts on that at Newshoggers.

It's hard not to like the guy, but that folksy backwoods image isn't going to play well outside the US. In fact that image has made us a joke over the last few years and it sorely needs to be changed.

Good point Fogg. I suppose that's another reason Biden got the nod.
