The scoop from Washington

Obama picks Biden for running mate

| 2 Comments

CNN and AP are reporting that Barack Obama has tapped Delaware Sen. Joe Biden to be his running mate. I had the scoop on Aug. 13 that Obama was said to be leaning towards Biden for the ticket.

Obama will appear with Biden in Springfield, Ill. on Saturday.

I cannot understand this choice. Biden has said very nice things about John McCain and had very harsh words for Obama.

Hillary would of been a much better choice!

THE MAN HAS 36 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN THE SENATE,
THE US SENATE!
HE IS THE REAL DEAL AND MCCAIN KNOWS HOW REAL HE
IS, HE IS A LAWYER AS WELL, MCCAIN IS NOT!
PAT HANG IN THERE, WE NEED YOUR VOTE, DON'T JUMP
SHIP- OBAMA AND BIDEN WILL BE SUCCESSFUL!
