As I sat and watched Barack Obama begin to introduce his running mate, a funny thing happened.

Obama kept trying to introduce Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.

The first time, Obama caught himself. As he brought Biden’s name up initially, he said “ladies and gentlemen, the next P” his lips pursed as he was going to make a “p” and say “president”, but he caught himself and said Vice President.

The second time, he couldn’t help himself. As he thundered on about change this country needs he introduced “the next President… Vice President of the United States – Joe Biden!”

Freudian slip anyone?
