After a week of anticipation, it has been announced that Barack Obama has picked Joseph Biden as his vice-presidential running mate. The text-message will be sent on Saturday. If Barry had asked me, I believe that Biden would have been who I would have picked for him. There’s some great Joe Biden VP videos below.

Its an Obama Biden ticket!

The Obama campaign had reported that they would release the name of the Obama VP choice on Saturday morning, and sure enough, they did it right after midnight. The Obama text-message is scheduled to come out later this morning. Right Pundits can report that Biden will be the Obama Vice President. Obama Biden 08.

You might remember that Joseph Biden was so excited that the democratic party had a ‘clean and articulate African American’ in Barack Obama.

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,�? Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.�?

I think having a vice president who thinks you are articulate and clean is a very important thing.

Interestingly, Joseph Biden has been in the Senate for since 1972, about 40 years, so the whole Obama campaign stance of getting away from Washington politics just got thrown out the window. He also has picked someone with as much ego and arrogance as him. It’ll be interesting to see how those two egos fit in the same room. They are both big talkers, so one wonders who will listen?

Its also interesting that he picked a hawkish democrat. Biden voted for the war in Iraq and was a strong advocate for our need to go there. That kind of undermines Obama’s anti-war dove stance. Of course, he does have a reputation for being tough and a fighter, which offers a counter point to some of Obama’s weaknesses.

Here’s a fun video of Joe Biden making fun of Indian Americans …. “You CANNOT go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent … I’m not joking.”

Here’s a video of Joe Biden explaining how his state was a ‘slave state’ and therefore he isn’t a Northeastern liberal elitist and can win the South.

Yeah – Biden is a GREAT choice as Obama’s text message. :)
