Obama and Biden in ‘08?

Speculation and hype on whom Senator Obama is going to pick as a Vice Presidential candidate is building and the real money is squarely on the shoulders of Senator Joe Biden of Delaware. When it comes to knowing what is going on around the world I would have to say that Biden is a lock for Obama’s V.P. pick. There is not one other political person in both houses of Congress that knows world diplomacy and is as well respected around the world as Joe Biden. Biden is a human sponge when it comes to events happening all around the world and he would be a blessing not just to American's as our VP but to the world.

In contrast, John McCain will have to follow the money and pick a hundred millionaire like former Republican Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts who bankrolled his entire campaign for the most part. It would be a good fit for McCain, hundred millionaires have things in common that most of us regular working slobs do not. They have tax cuts in common simply because they both pay enormous amounts of taxes from their respective fortunes.

I’m good with Joe Biden, a Senator that takes the train home every night from the capitol, sits amongst the people and talks up a storm on any issue and he can nail all the facts. Joe Biden is a coffee shop kind of guy and that fits in with the kind of person I would like to see as our next Vice President. Over at CNN they have this speculation and report…

Obama VP buzz squarely on Biden

Speculation is building Biden will be named Obama's running mate.

(CNN) – When Joe Biden returns to Capitol Hill Monday from his two-day trip to embattled Georgia, vice presidential speculation will rest squarely on him.

The longtime Delaware senator and former presidential candidate has long been considered to be on the shortlist for Barack Obama's running mate, but his quickly-planned trip to Georgia Saturday night at the behest of that country's president left Washington buzzing he is the most likely choice.

After all, the Georgia crisis appears to have put national security issues again at the forefront of the presidential campaign, and it's an issue where John McCain has long held the advantage over Obama. The Illinois senator, so the Beltway chatter goes, needs a running-mate with foreign policy experience now more than ever.

If Biden does aspire to be on the Democratic presidential ticket, the trip couldn't have come at a better time — reinforcing his lengthy resume on matters of foreign policy and reminding voters, and Obama, he is well respected by foreign leaders half a world away.

The trip also comes days before Obama is expected to reveal his VP choice — with only days remaining until the Democratic convention, the choice is expected to come this week.

Could you picture a better debate of VP’s than Biden and Romney? I’ve seen Romney debate in the primary for President, Senatorial elections, Governor elections and he does not do well when someone with a strong political intuitions such as Joe Biden would be firing comments and accusations at him. Senator Joe would mop the floor with Romney and for that matter anyone else that McCain could pick as his V.P. choice.

I’m putting the money on Biden with Obama and Romney with McCain and that would be a bloggers wet dream to report on. McCain fumbling on his memory and Obama eloquently and correctly stating the facts. Biden pretty much would be slapping Romney upside the head with facts, figures, reports and the list goes on as Mitt finds his near perfect hair messed up with the tropical hurricane that Biden would be lambasting him with repeatedly. If you know anything about Joe Biden then you know that he has total recall and can state facts fast and furious.

Anywho, if Obama picks Biden, I’m cool with it. Even if he picks Hillary Clinton I’m cool with it. I would just love to see Joe Biden ripping someone a new avenue for human waste product.
