With Biden, Corzine gets his second choice

Governor Corzine said earlier this week, and repeated yesterday, that he thought Hillary Clinton would be the strongest possible running mate for Barack Obama.

But Corzine knew that wasn’t likely to happen during the final weeks of the vice-presidential selection madness, and said that, barring Clinton, he’d like to see Obama choose Biden.

“Biden is the person I would pick given that it gives great credence to the ticket with regard to national strategic and policy issues, and it allows for Sen. Obama to give full focus on the economy, which is number one, two and three on the voters’ minds,” he said yesterday.
