    This is what we need; a "pitbull" who's not afraid to go after McBush and his cronies!

    Bring it on home, Biden! For those choosing NOT to vote, if you don't participate, you should have no say about what goes on in this country and you give up your privilege to be an American. Vote!

    Wonderful selection for Barack Obama. He's shown us now from his first most important decision during his campaign for President of the United States that he is indeed ready to lead the country.

    My prayers have been answered! McSame can't hold a candle on foreign affairs with Biden nor can anyone he picks come close. Biden will eat them both for breakfast. This is now going to be fun.

    I'm not doubting CNN, but it's only legit when Obama sends me the text. It's 12:48 A. M. Let Larry go to sleep.

    Well the Democrats are screwed now. The Dem. ticket now has two very intelligent men. America is so used to idiots running our country that we do not know how to vote for smart guys.

    Oh great, he picks the guy that called him inexperienced... The man that said that the presidency is not something that lends itself to on the job training. Joe Biden, The man who was knocked off the 1988 campaign due to a plagiarism scandal.

    Wonderful Choice

    Hey! Where is our text message about it? :(

    Well, how about that. I post in the article about Biden being the front-runner, and seconds later he is the VP. Like I said before, his experience in foreign policy and willingness to be the attack dog can only help, though I am a bit worried that he may undermine the idea of "change." Even so, OBAMA/BIDEN 08!
