Barack Obama Picks Joe Biden as Vice President

It's In! Obama Picked Biden For Vice President! Good Choice?

We've been waiting for the text for days and now we know! Barack Obama just announced his running mate in the 2008 presidential election is none other than Joe Biden. The first Obama/Biden rally will go down today around 3:00 pm ET.

Biden is in his sixth term as the senior Senator from Delaware, is Chairman of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, and was in the running for the presidency this year before dropping out right after the Iowa caucuses. Are you surprised? Is this a good choice?

I like being able to use it! Someone asked the woman who tends our office plants what she thought of Biden (runs the business with a number of employees and services Malibu estates). She had no idea who he is.

Yep, since Biden can't be vice president AND secretary of state, Richardson would be a good secretary of state.

Coral, I really liked Bill Richardson as well. My guess is that he will get an plum cabinet position, espeically with his experience in hostage negotations and the like.

I was actually hoping for Bill Richardson, Governor of New Mexico, but I guess a two minority ticket would have been too much to hope for.

Seriously. And it's not like they leave him in a room alone to run the country. We elect one man as president but he has a staff of what, like 4,000 people?

It cracks me up when people talk about "experience" as if there is some recipe or formula that has proven to turn out great Presidents. For all their "experience" Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were very harmful to our country.

I just saw another new ad on CNN with a Hilary delegate saying that she is a Democrat voting for McCain because he has the experience to be president and urging Democrats to do the same. Sad.

I think the newest commercial against Obama was probably the one that the McCain campaign was planning on using if Obama chose HRC as VP, but they reworked it after it was announced that Biden was chosen instead. All I have to say is that it is a pathetic move...why would any vote for McCain based on that commercial? Unless they are those people who are voting for McCain out of spite that HRC wasn't chosen as the Democratic nominee :oy: Part of me hopes that Obama will use this tactic against McCain if he choose Mitt Romney, but another part of me hopes that Obama will not stoop to that level.

Wow, 93 voters on were hoping for Biden to be the vp elect? That's surprising. Maybe the quiz should have been worded differently.

That ad makes me mad, too. And I'm sure it makes Clinton mad to see her words used for the other side!

Like kastarte said, if HRC was the nominee, I'd still vote for her. I might not be completely thrilled about the choice, but I'd rather it be her than McCain.

I can't remember any presidential elections where I was so upset about the Democratic nominee not being the one I wanted that I voted for a Republican out of spite.

I can't imagine a whole lot of people are going to decide "McCain's right, Obama was mean to Hillary so I'm going to vote for four more years of Bush just to show him!"

I just watched the new McCain Hillary ad. This is so blatant it might backfire. Right?

UGH the whole thing pisses me off. You know that they talked about it. She wasn't in the dark. She wasn't shocked by it. They worked something out...probably all the way back when they met in secret right before she quit her campaign. Sensationalism does suck kastarte2...and I agree that I think she's doing plenty for him. Jill I'm always up for a know that. ;)

They have to encourage drama, Hypno. If there is no drama, they have less to report. :oy: Sensationalism sucks.

I've been sitting here cursing at the media for two days now for baiting the audience and fanning the flames by using terms such as "total slap in the face" to describe Sen. Obama's decision not to choose Sen. Clinton.

Yesterday I heard that Biden made only $150,000 last year, and his net worth is something like $155,000. That is much lower than I expected. Not that he isn't well off, it just was much lower than I expected for a long term senator.

That was a nice email from her Harmony. :) I am still interested in doing that shot, if you are. On the night of her speech at the convention, perhaps? "The Unity Shot"? Anyone else game? ;) :drinks:

Mac disappoints me. Obviously we all knew no matter what the candidates promised that this would get ugly. If he picks Romeny, I hope somebody makes a video showing all the not so nice things they have to say about each other during the primaries. I seem to remember some mud being slung. This is another catch 22 for Obama. If he had picked a Clinton, the dogs would have been released. And now they are attacking him for not choosing her. Just a sad attempt to try to lure the Clinton voters.

I was just looking through old Romney v McCain quotes - McCain really should be careful of what he says about Obama, unless he's going to pick his mom as his running mate.

torgleson, I saw the ad this morning. McCain just sinks lower and lower.
