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?
Go, Obama!!

Hi Lisa, I'm for Obama, too. I wish he'd picked Hillary Clinton but don't think his VP choice all that big a deal. I say, Go Obama!!!

Hi there! We'll see what happens from here on out, but I feel Obama can win, and win by a large majority, if we all stay on a POSITIVE message. I hate all the negative campaigning that goes on!

Lisa, I couldn't be more celebratory about this pairing. I supported Biden back in 1988. When he ran in the primaries this time he was my man, and I donated to his campaign. I was devastated when the country didn't see what I see in him and he dropped out. At that point I began telling everyone I know (including Biden's website) that he should be the VP choice. I'm thrilled it turned out this way.

I'm becoming very excited about this. Again, I love that Obama went with "old white guy", because I believe on a basic, somewhat crude level, we NEED more of that vote(r), that is--old white guys.
And after hearing Biden speak several times now, and learning more about him, I think this is STELLAR pairing!(More good judgement on the part of our Senator Obama--take THAT, Republicans!!)
