Senator Joe Biden is promising that if Senator Barack Obama is elected, he will be "tested" within six months of taking office:
"Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate."
So...if we take Senator Obama's running mate at his word, why don't we skip the testing of an inexperienced man and elect Senator McCain for President?
Biden certainly seems to make that case.
Update: Ed Morrissey agrees: "Isn’t this an argument for electing someone with more experience? Why should we elect a man who will embolden our enemies and push us to the brink of disaster? Biden seems convinced that electing John McCain will make our enemies abroad much less sanguine about provoking us — which is one of the best arguments yet heard for electing McCain."
