Several times? He had short-lived campaigns in 1988 and 2008. Many voters do know of him, just like they know of Lieberman, Kerry, and other politicians. However, the Democrats & Obama need to appeal to Americans beyond the politically knowledgeable. Biden may be a great choice if all voters were intelligent and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, they aren't. They need to go with the marketing potential.Originally posted by: Fern

Most Americans don't know Biden. He doesn't come in a nice pre-existing package to be able to easily shore up Obama's weak areas. However, someone like Wesley Clark would not require much effort.
Biden has made serious Presidential runs several times.
Many middle age and older voters know him.

Good luck with marketing that man - generic Washington politician #2983.
