Joe Biden's Excellent Tour

More

Joe Biden was on the road today. Along with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and others, he was touting the benefits of the stimulus bill, this time at a bridge repair in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. He's also off to Kansas this week as well as Michigan.

You can always make the case for presidential barnstorming to promote upcoming legislation. President Obama is in Wisconsin today promoting health care reform. There's something a little tacky, I think, about taking victory lap after victory lap for something that you've already passed. Yes, the getting-America-moving tour probably has some psychic benefit for the economy and I'm all for that. But at a certain point a tour like this seems a little silly.

That said, is there really much debate about the stimulus anymore?
