To the Extent Vice Presidential Candidates Matter
To the extent vice presidential candidates matter, Obama's pick of Joe Biden doesn't seem to auger well for privacy. According to this article from C|NET, Biden has a nasty habit of strongly supporting privacy unfriendly measures, usually under the guise of specious claims of law enforcement necessity. While I don't know anyone who is voting based on privacy concerns in November (including me), it would be nice to have a VP candidate who was a little bit more privacy friendly.
