Barack Obama Picks Joe Biden For VP

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama has chosen Delaware Sen. Joe Biden to be his running mate, reports CNN.

Biden, 65, is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He has four children, one of whom is deceased. Background info via Wiki: In 1966, while in law school, Biden married Neilia Hunter. They had three children, Joseph R. “Beau” Biden III, Robert Hunter, and Naomi. His wife and infant daughter died in a car accident shortly after he was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972. His two young sons, Beau and Hunter, were seriously injured in the accident, but both eventually made full recoveries. In 1977, Biden married Jill Tracy Jacobs. They have one daughter, Ashley.

Obama and Biden will face off in the November 4 presidential election against Republican John McCain, who has not yet announced his choice for VP candidate.

    it’s simple; obama and hilary hate each other. so why would he want to choose her for his vp candidate. he wants someone he likes; someone he wants to work with. not someone he can’t even stand to be in the same room with

    M, you need to take your medicine. Obama is a Christian, I daresay, he is more devout in his Christian faith than McCain. However, it is sad that you are religiously intolerant.

    he will lose and its still going to be a Republican Pres. America is not ready for a black Pres.

  18. 18 sheep's wool Says:

    Personally, I’m not surprised at the Biden pick, he’s been on the top of the list for a while now. I’m also really glad he didn’t choose Hillary. Not that I have anything against Hillary, but as #12 said, Obama and Hillary aren’t on good terms and it is best that they keep their distance from one another.

    Either people are very young here or they have not studied history.

    Kennedy and Johnson hated each other. Despite his many flaws, Kennedy had the guts to pick the best VP candidate.

    Luckily for many in this country, Johnson became the president that Kennedy never could have been.

    Biden is a terrible choice. He has always been the egotistical & vain high school jock type. He is not even close to brilliant – not even in the ballpark. I await his first embarrassing gaffe on the campaign trail. Perhaps he’ll reiterate how “clean and articulate” Obama is. Or perhaps he’ll remind everyone that you need an Indian accent to go into 7/11s. My this is going to be rich.

    Obama made over 4 mil dollars in the last two years and gave $26,000 to Rev Wrights Church, but leaves his half brother living in a shack without electricity or water, what kind of person does that.? who is all about himself….even staff members who work with him call him OBAME. Joe Biden is the poorest member of the Senate with a net worth of minus -$300,000…yep, that is who I want to listen to on the economy and money matters
    No matter how many houses the McCains own, I am sure it is less than John Kerry
    Obama is very weak on most matters of State

    @ #24

    Obama’s half brother’s mother doesn’t even know where he is, how would Obama of someone he doesn’t know.

    While were are on the topic of family, CINDY McCAIN inherited her fathers multimillion dollar beer empire and acts like an only child. But her father had a daughter before Cindy and she was “NOT GIVEN A PENNY” and Cindy continuously claims she is an only child.

    When her dad died, Cindy cut off all of her sister’s credit cards.

    Look it up.. McCain and his wife are greedier than we originally thought!
