(CNN) – John McCain has called Joe Biden to congratulate him on being named Barack Obama's running mate, two GOP sources tell CNN's John King.
It was a "short conversation" and "very pleasant," a McCain aide in Arizona said.
"It was a brief phone call, they've known each other for many years, they are good friends," McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds also said.
McCain communications director Jill Hazelbaker declined to give further details.
"It was a private, personal phone call," she said. "Senator McCain welcomed him into the race."
Friends for years? Will nothing in this world change for humanity. It's always obvious all the parties are one with the same agenda.
McCain is a nice guy
I'm surprised McOld even remembered who Biden was.
Now that he has made the phone call he will dump on him tomorrow...hell he did it within hours of the announcement.
McCain is a rich, pathetic ole man....how mamy houses do you have today!!!!!
Obama is still a loser and according to Biden, not ready to be president." :(
John McCain 08 and Hillary Clinton 2012! :)
John McCain is a first rate American...and belives in doing the right thing. Calling Biden and congratulating him was the respectable thing to do.
biden is such a clean, well -spoken choice!!
Am I the only one to connect the 3:a.m. wake up call comments from Hillary with the timing of the Biden announcement ???
What a dignified gesture, too bad he immediately undercut it by releasing an Obama/Biden smear the same day, maybe right after he hung up the phone.
Remember when McCain promised to be civil? Apparently McCain doesn't.
Yeah today he calls him next week he will be making up LIES AND SMEARS ABOUT BIDEN like he does obama mccain is sneaky and untrustworthy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go obama/biden08 LOVE THAT TICKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am very supportive of the nomination of Joe Biden as the Vice President by Barak Obama. Biden brings to the ticket a great deak if stregth precisely in the areas where Obama may be thought to be light in experience. Biden has experience in foreigh policy, the ways of Washington, integrity and political and intellectual strength. He is a great speaker as well.
I am sure Sen. Obama will surround himself with people of similar caliber, after he gets elected.
Go get the white house and a majority in both houses of congress for the democrats Guys!
Obama / Biden – Now this is the real "Dream Team"!
ginchinchili I know what you mean –
Heck I dont even know if you will be able to eread this because i probably get 20% of my comments posted – i dont know if its because i am not as caustic as some ot maybe not caustic enough.
McCain is controversial in saying congratulations and here is my negative campaign add.
Why is it that CNN only displays posts that closely match its own agenda?
Biased reporting and the censoring of divergent viewpoints only undermine CNN's credibility.
Don't worry Obama supporters, McCain will call Biden again to console him after November's election loss.
The republicians will laugh all the way to the whitehouse, Obama, what a blunder. between big mouth Michelle, and Bidens big mouth, he'll never get a word in.
