It may mean nothing, but tonight in Chesapeake, Virginia, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, made his second oratorical reference in a week to Veep finalist Sen. Joe Biden, D-Delaware.
Earlier this week Obama referred to Biden when discussing Pakistan during a speech to the VFW. Tonight Obama mentioned him in reference to having a strategy for shutting down the drug trade in Afghanistan in such a way as to not provide recruits for the Taliban.
"I joined with people like Joe Biden to increase a billion dollars of investment," Obama said. No such references have been made to the other two said to be finalists, Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine.
