2008 Presidential Race, Barack Obama, Joe Biden

>Biden wins Obama’s VP sweepstakes

>At three o’clock this morning Barack Obama finally sent out the text message announcing that Sen. Joe Biden of Deleware will be his running mate. Others such as Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana were on the short list of people who were seriously being vetted for the job. Interestingly, Sen. Hillary Clinton was never vetted. I’m curious to see if there will be any blow back from that from the Hillary supporters and the Democrats of the P.U.M.A. crowd.

Personally, I don’t think that Joe Biden is a very good choice for Barack Obama. Obama talks endlessly about hope and change and being different from the typical Washington politicians. Oddly enough, he then decides to pick a guy who has been in Washington for over 35 years and has ties to lobbyists (remember Obama supposedly hates lobbyists). On top of that, Biden has a history of repeatedly putting his foot in his mouth. If it were me, I would have picked Evan Bayh. Besides being a moderate Democrat he is actually a likable guy. Instead, Obama decided to pick someone who is often obnoxious and arrogant. *shrug* I don’t really think that Obama or the DNC really cares what I think…

With that said, I’ll leave you with some of Joe Biden’s greatest hits:

  3. >Evan Bayh was my governor for six years (I moved to Tennessee to go to college in 1995) and a good one at that (his LG and the idiot Republicans who have come after him have made Hoosiers realize how good they had it), so I was genuinely disappointed that he didn’t get the nod. I don’t know diddly about Biden, but Bayh would have made a good veep and, I hope, will in fact be president one of these go-rounds.

  4. >I'm sure the B. Hussein Obama camp felt it was somewhat between a rock & a hard place.If they grabbed another young, fresh type, seemingly unpolluted by DC and ripe with change the criticism would be they had not the experience to lead.I'm thinking they might have found a bit more of a middle ground than Biden, however.Honestly, as a conservative not wanting an Obama presidency, I'm content with this move. I don't feel any heat from Biden, but I'm sure Obama felt he filled in some gaps he had.Any predictions on McCain’s VP?
