In building his own presidential campaign, Barack Obama’s vice president has made a subtle but important bet.
Yes, Joe Biden has embraced ideas of the left that might have been too far of a reach for a general election voter not all that long ago, but his campaign has also been built on a bigger argument. And that argument is simply this: Important change, the kind of change that can be felt in real people’s lives, is not only possible within the structures of our current political system, working within the system is also probably the only way meaningful, positive change is going to occur.
Voters in 10 states on Super Tuesday, and now this week voters in Idaho, Missouri, Mississippi and Michigan, seem to be wagering that Biden’s bet is right for them and right to take into the fall election.
