Obama and Biden Super Ticket 08’

Early this morning, around 3:00 AM, cell phones across America were buzzing with the Obama campaign news on who the next Vice President will be. Obama officially tapped the very knowledgeable Senator from Delaware, Joe Biden. Two words, EXCELLENT CHOICE!

One of the most important things to think about with Biden as a Vice President pick is the lack of drama associated with his name. There are no issues that he is in conflict with the candidate actually running for President. People love Joe Biden, know Joe Biden, and believe in his abilities to govern as President if God forbid anything happened to Barack Obama. More importantly there is not one other person in the Congress or all of the offices of Governor that can bring and expert opinion on foreign policy. Chuck Todd over at MSNBC has this to say on the subject…

One thing is certain, McCain will now have to step up to the plate with someone equally competent and let me be the first to report that Joe Biden is already taken.

I tend to agree with you here. Obama was in an extremely difficult position -- any pick other than Hillary Clinton would have felt like a letdown, but choosing her wouldn't have been realistic or practical. Within that constraint, Biden is about the best choice Obama could have made. As you say, he brings no drama or charisma with him, but Obama himself has as much of those traits as the ticket needs. Everyone seems to agree that Biden brings the foreign-policy experience which Obama lacks.

A possible Biden drawback: his role in the Anita Hill / Clarence Thomas hearings will likely further turn off the older female voters who make up the biggest chunk of those disaffected Clinton supporters who reject Obama.

His earlier criticisms of Obama, of course, are likely to feature in Republican attack ads.

Now we wait to see whom McCain will choose.

I still believe McCain will win in November.
