Meet Joe Biden
Obama sent a text message early this morning to his supporters -- I got mine via Twitter -- that he had picked Delaware Sen. Joe Biden as his vice-presidential running mate. As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Biden is widely seen as the perfect choice to help counter attacks by the McShame camp that Obama doesn't have enough foreign policy experience. On the otherhand, Biden is also widely known as being impulsively mouthy and saying exactly what he means. That's refreshing and scary. Obama and Biden will make their first joint appearance this afternoon at a rally in Springfield, Illinois.
