Obama Picks VP Running Mate

Joe Biden, as predicted on this blog! (and since I’m usually wrong about this sort of thing, this is impressive. Or random)

US Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has announced that Joe Biden will be his running mate in November’s election.

Mr Obama’s choice, confirmed on his website and with a text message to supporters, comes ahead of next week’s Democratic Party convention.

Mr Biden, a 65-year-old veteran lawmaker, is highly respected on foreign policy issues.

Republican contender John McCain could announce his choice next week.

    Wasn’t Biden a Delawarian senator?

    I would love to say something snarky but all I can say is ….Joe Biden? All this secrecy and waiting for Biden?

    I have no opinion on the guy.

    Ding ding ding! You DID go Biden, way back when, didn’t you? Very good. I can’t remember who I had put there, but I do remember that I hoped Biden would get to do a lot of public speaking (for the fun of hearing it) wherever he ended up…so, I’m taking the silver.
