Going in I thought a big risk for Obama was that Biden would come to be seen as the smart one on the ticket. They managed to avoid falling into that trap.

"Going in I thought a big risk for Obama was that Biden would come to be seen as the smart one on the ticket. They managed to avoid falling into that trap."

I wonder sometimes if Obama chose Biden for VP in large part because he's such a buffoon. Obama, like most Narcissists, views himself as the smartest man that ever lived- but at the same time, he doesn't like anyone to challenge this pristine view (and he struggles hard to control his inner rage in the rare occasions when anyone does challenge him). Having a credible, intelligent VP would actually be a threat to Obama's view of himself... so he chose Biden.
