On Wednesday, thousands of people crowded into a Fairfax County park for Sen. John McCain‘s first rally in the Washington region with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, whose appearance drew the same sort of media attention that she has enjoyed since joining the GOP ticket just more than two weeks ago.

The same day, Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. hosted a town hall meeting in New Hampshire with a crowd of more than 800. Biden hasn’t made much of a splash since joining the Democratic ticket, but on this day, he did. In response to a question, he voiced a view many Democrats now hold, that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) “might have been a better pick than me” to be Sen. Barack Obama‘s running mate.

When the senator from Illinois tapped Biden late last month, most Democrats were exuberant, thinking he would add badly needed experience and foreign policy credentials to the ticket, deliver attacks against McCain and bolster Obama’s support among voters who have been skeptical of his candidacy.
