Barack Obama Chose Joe Biden As His Vice President

This morning I received an email from “Barack Obama” informing me that he has chosen Joe Biden to be his running mate in the November elections. Joe Biden has served as a US senator of Delaware since 1973 and has been apart of the Judiciary and Foreign Affairs committee since that time. Not only was he a member of the Foreign Affairs committee, but for the 110 Congress, he is the chairman of the committee. This may be the reason that Obama chose him as his running mate. He will help to cut the gap between McCain on foreign affairs and hopefully show the country that he does have the resources to handle US foreign relations.

Biden serves on the following committees in the 110th U.S. Congress

  1. Committee on Foreign Relations (Chairman)
    • As Chairman of the full committee Biden is an ex officio member of each subcommittee.
  2. Committee on the Judiciary
    • Subcommittee on Antitrust Competition Policy and Consumer Rights
    • Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs, (Chairman)
    • Subcommittee on Human Rights and the Law
    • Subcommittee on Immigration Border Security and Citizenship
    • Subcommittee on Technology Terrorism and Homeland Security
  3. Caucus on International Narcotics Control (Co-Chairman)

Here is a screen shot of the email that was sent out this morning at 4:45am to Obama’s supporters.

I’m not sure if this will make the ticket stronger for Obama, but I do know that if John McCain selects Mitt Romney (former Massachusetts Governor), Obama’s chances will drop significantly. I know that many people are against it, but he should have chosen Hillary Clinton as his VEEP. He completely forgot about the 18 million votes that Clinton attained and now those people will either be voting for McCain or not voting at all. Either way it was a bad move on Obama’s part to pick Biden.

I have a feeling that his campaign is going to crumble because of this choice, however, I am still voting for Obama because John McCain will continue what George W. Bush started and this country will fall down even harder than it has now. George Bush says that America doesn’t have any problems, but it seems that we are going to have four more years of “Bush” if Obama doesn’t fly out of the downward spiral he is currently in. Since July, he has lost half of the lead that he had over McCain. Obama is not perfect, no one is, but this country can not afford to continue on the same path that it is going in. We need a change and Obama is that change. He may not be the best choice in the history of the US, but he is not GW or McCain.

    Any democrat who votes for McCain and not vote for Obama because Hillary didn’t win the primary is stupid. Putting her on the ticket as VP would have seemed more like pandering than actually strengthening the ticket. Joe Biden is a spectacular choice. Frankly, if not for a couple verbal missteps, we might be sitting here seeing Biden choose Obama as running mate rather than the way it turned out. McCain’s complaints about lack of experience or foreign policy will all now crumble. This will be a boost.
