    This choice just cost him the election. If he had chosen Hillary, they would have been unbeatable. So sad.

    Who can think Obama isn't ready to govern now. A sensible decision by a pragmatic, practical man.

    A very good choice; the Americans should focus on what The Greatest President of America once said 'Whatever l do remain for or against me, l wish l could work for 26 hours a day before am gone...........' all for the services of America.........JFK
    Now let us learn from this and get The Party united; no individual is greater than The Party....Let The Dems Party come first; other things could follow.

    Biden is a Trojan Horse.
    He has praised McCain dozens and dozens of occasions.
    He supported the Iraq war.
    He is OLD Washington.
    O my dear naive Obama, do you know what you're doing?!

    Obviously, but it would have been nice to allow the text message to go through first. This "scoop" just makes CNN look bad.

  19. OBAMA ALL THE WAY!!

    Obviously, I'm extremely satisfied with this pick. I think Biden strenghthens the Democratic ticket and gives Obama strength in some of the areas he need help in.

    WAY TO GO OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    OBAMA "08"

    Biden has a rascist streak that showed when he said you can’t go to a Seven-Eleven or Dunkin’ Donuts without an Indian accent, then said “I’m not joking.”

    I am just thrilled! I believe that Senator Biden adds the experience and knowledge to calm a nervous democratic party. The addition of Biden has strengthened the ticket, there is no doubt about it!

    IM AN OBAMA SUPPORTER AND I MUST SAY I AM KIND OF DISAPPOINTED IN HIS SELECTION...I WAS HOPING THAT HE WOULD PICK GOV. KAINE FROM VIRGINIA...WELL IT LOOKS LIKE THIS IS GOING TO BE A CLOSE ELECTION
