Obama Picks Joe Biden For VP...
Barrack Obama has chosen Joe Biden to be his running mate for President of the United States. Mnay have thought that this will give a boost to Obama's struggling campaign. The choice of Biden will undoubtedly create the longest winded presidential ticket in the history of the United States. Obama already is over explanatory in his responses, and with the addition of Bidens verbose speaking style, we will hear even longer nuanced, conditional, carefully worded cautious answers to questions. Biden is said to give Obama a boast in national security and international affairs policy. Many have predicted Biden as the choice so this does not surprise anyone. Lets hope that this helps Barrack because the Change We Can Believe in frenzy that won him the nomination has really disappeared, and what we have been left with is a boring, confused, overly defensive politician. Americans like sound bites and platitudes. Obama better give them up soon or Hillary may be brought back from the dead Voodoo style at the convention.
