Saturday, August 23rd, 2008 :: Obama Chooses

Obama has texted America his choice. It’s Senator Joseph Biden.

Biden, the 65 year-old Senator from Delaware, doesn’t just provide an older white maleness to Obama’s young Blackness. He’s the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee and has spent most of his adult life as an elected official as a Senator. He’s expected to wow the skeptical Budweiser voters who chose Hillary Clinton in the primaries.

Biden is also known for being as loose-lipped as Obama is careful. Last year, as an opponent for the Democratic nomination, Biden spoke about Obama’s candidacy in these words:

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Obama texted supporters early this morning. He’s set to make an appearance with Biden at noon Eastern Standard Time in Illinois.
