I'm sure, because I'm a partisan Democrat, and because I've already started moving that way, that in a couple of weeks I'll be convinced that Joe Biden was a good choice for running mate. But it's not because I'm simple-minded. It's because I'll be synthesizing happiness. And lots of people will do precisely the same thing, only it might be about something else. It might be about John McCain's VP choice, or about the collapse of their favorite baseball team down the stretch, or about the end of this year's exquisite berry season. Whatever it is, we'll come to grips with our disappointment and move on, because that's what we do as human beings.
Dan Gilbert explains it better than I do, and he has data to back him up. Watch it. You'll feel better.
