The Pennsylvania delegation got a surprise with their corn flakes this morning. Joe Biden stopped by for breakfast. The ballroom at the Denver Tech Center Marriott came alive when Obama's running mate entered. After a standing ovation Biden gave a short impassioned speech about how important Pennsylvania is going to be for the Democratic ticket. He also did what all politicians do when they give a speech. He reflected on his roots as a way of connecting with regular folks. Biden was born in Scranton. He said, "Scranton never leaves you." Then he joked that when he met Scrantonians Bob Casey Sr. and his son he decided to move away. Biden said he knew there couldn't be more than one great person coming out of a town like Scranton. That's when he moved to Delaware. Last night in his speech at the DNC, Biden recounted how his two-hour commute home every night gave him a chance to contemplate humanity. Come on. Anyone can ride the train from D.C. to Delaware. If he really wants to contemplate humanity, let's see him come to Pittsburgh and ride the 54-C.
