OBAMA AND BIDEN!!!!!!!!! I took a couple of days to sorta "digest" this pairing, and here's what I've decided:
* Obama wants to pick up votes in Pennsylvania, which he'll definitely do(though he may not win that state, but it'll be closer), since Joe Biden originally hails from there.
* Blue-collar,working-class voters wil identify with Biden, as those are also his roots.
* Roman Catholics will increasingly consider Obama, as Senator Biden is a devout, beloved Catholic(though not without his critics--he supports Roe v. Wade). Most younger Catholics would have a problem supporting McCain's war-mongering stances.
* He's chairman of Foreign Affairs Committee, and has 35 years in Senate. So he's knowledgeable about foreign affairs(something Obama is perceived as being short on), and very experienced.
I still wish he'd selected one General Wesley Clark--I think that would've been a slam-dunk.
But I'm campaigning for Senator Obama, and if he believes Joe Biden can help carry this ticket, then, let's GO!!!!
Famous quote of Biden's, which I love:
"If anyone ever tries to say I'm not religious enough, I'll shove my rosary beads down their throat."
What do YOU think?
