Biden and Obama Run a Campaign Fit for the 1980s

The reason Joe Biden lost women is that he acted loud, bullying, obnoxious, condescending, flippant, unserious, manic, and a boor. In other words - he acted like every woman's ex-husband.
When a politician is in trouble, he usually falls back on what he knows best -- the world he saw around him when he entered into political awareness as a young adult.

That's what seems to have happened to the Democratic ticket after Barack Obama's disastrous performance in the Denver debate Oct. 3.

So Obama on the campaign trail and Joe Biden in the vice presidential debate fell back on what they know from their formative political years.

At least that's the best explanation I can come up with for the Obama campaign's obsession with Big Bird.

On the campaign trail...
