CNN – Who should presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden be thinking about as he closes in on the choice of a running mate? Maybe it is someone like Biden himself.

I was part of the campaign team that interviewed Biden before he was chosen for the ticket by Barack Obama, and I served with the Vice President in the White House. He was a picked for a variety of reasons: his years of experience in Washington DC that complemented Obama’s short tenure there; a deep familiarity with global leaders; and a cultural and political base in the industrial heartland.
