Obama has relaised than anyone other than the questionable Clinton is a good choice.

Of course, Biden will compliment Obama well, and will also be an ideal defense mechanism against people like Clinton, who continue to grind the political axe.

Now the contest is really happening and it is time to sweep Clinton aside, and tell her supporters to either back the true candidate or sling their long and sharp hooks.

If they want to back a loser – let them!

First Obama spends entire two weeks campaigning outside of the US most notably in Europe hoping the big rallies over there would somehow hide the fact the he is a foreign policy novice. Then when this move backfires and Obama starts sliding in the polls (cause hey, the “small-town bitterly clinging to guns and religion” US people, couldn’t care less about what the Germans think of who should be our next president), Barak does what any novice in a tight spot does – he panics and pulls another rookie mistake, by selecting Biden as his next “president, ooops vice-president” who by the way is an “EXPERT” I mind you on FOREIGN POLICY!?!

Now Mr. Obama, if you were to say that the former secretary if state Madeline Albright is an expert on foreign policy, or former ambassador Dick Holbrook is an expert on foreign policy, I would agree with you completely, simply because I know for fact they spent the bulk of their time serving on the road, meeting statesmen from foreign countries and conducting the foreign policy of the United States, as defined by the US STATE DEPRATMENT!

The SENATE FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITIE Mr. Obama does not conduct nor does it create the US foreign policy! Hence, JOE BIDEN IS NO EXPERT ON FOREIGN POLICY AT ALL!! In fact he has less foreign policy experience than you Mr. Obama, as he is yet to visit a foreign country or meet a foreign politician. He is nothing more than a pencil pusher and his selection as your VP candidate will most definitely cost you the election.

HE’S NOT THAT IMPORTANT.

WE NEED AN EXPERIENCED “PRESIDENT” — NOT A “PRESIDENT IN TRAINING”!

McCAIN IN NOVEMBER! HILLARY IN 2012!

It shows that he is thought-full and want’s good counsel, not sicophants, as the un-elected Bush/Chaney turned out to be.

Obama/Biden; has a nice ring to it; God Speed…

Obama / Biden 50 = state sweep come November

You heard it here first!!!

He is the perfect VP pick and has already energized moderate Democrats.

“raise experience questions?”

Did George Bush picking Dick Cheeney as his VP raise experience questions?

Please. Obama and Biden is a dream ticket.

In my mind, it shows the opposite: that Obama is aware of his weaknesses, willing to confront them, and trying to create as well-rounded an executive branch as possible. Going with someone equally fresh to politics as him would have been disastrous for his bid, and was never a realistic option. It was inevitable that Obama would pick someone with foreign policy experience, and pragmatically speaking, Biden will likely help woo some votes.

I think it was solid choice on Obama’s part, but do worry about Biden’s mouth. The Democratic campaign doesn’t need any bandersnatches.
