@squinney,
Cool, squinney!

Lash, Obama has had a lot of good things to say about McCain, too... I don't think that's going to be really here nor there. Obviously Biden thinks Obama will be a better president than McCain.

@Lash,
And McCain said glowing things about Hillary and Hillary is supporting Obama. It's hard for McCain to turn around and say he didn't mean them.

@parados,
Last time I checked, Mrs. Bill Clinton was out of the race.

I posted a while back... and of course was informed that no one gave a damn.... that if Biden was picked I'd go ahead and vote for Obama. He would have been my first choice for President including over Hillary.

And for those here who said most confidently that I was going to vote for Obama anyway and was trying to save face...... you're wrong. I was prepared to either write in Biden or stay home.

So now I'm voting Obama/Biden.

Biden will definitely make things interesting. (laughing) His glowing remarks about McC will be hard to live down, though. It's hard to turn around and say you didn't mean it.... They're friends.


I have plenty of friends that are idiots in some respects.... and I call them on it to their faces frequently..... we're still friends though...

@Thomas,
Thomas I think Biden's foreign policy experience was paramount in the decision...

@H2O MAN,
that would suit me....although I think Obama has way more intelligence, awareness of what's going on around him and most importantly.... the DESIRE to understand what's going on around him.....he wasn't my first choice and I'm still not wild about him but he's a smart cookie.... unlike that dead between the ears brush cutter....

New Data: Impact of Biden

Barack Obama's choice of Joe Biden as his running mate is unlikely to shake-up the presidential horse race. In a new Washington Post-ABC News poll completed last night, three-quarters of voters said picking Biden would not sway their votes one way or the other. And about as many said they would be more apt to support Obama with Biden on the ticket as said the choice would make them less likely to vote Democratic on Election Day (13 to 10 percent).

Q. If Obama chooses Delaware Senator Joe Biden as his vice presidential running mate, would that make you more likely to vote for Obama, less likely, or wouldn't it make any difference in your vote?

SOURCE: Washington Post-ABC News poll conducted by telephone Aug. 19-22, 2008 among a random national sample of 916 registered voters. Results have a three point error margin.
