So, Obama’s vice-president choice is Joe Biden. I said last week I think it should/might be Kerry, and I know Shariq wanted someone fresher and new, but I think its the right choice for the same reasons I picked Kerry. Biden will be a good attack-dog, he has strong foreign-policy credentials, and he’s a strong Democrat. He’s also older and a Catholic which, according to Michael Tomasky, will help with those constituencies. Who am I to disagree? I love Obama’s latest ad too (on the right) – its time he started attacking McCain/McSame for his hypocrisy.
Update: Vino S disagrees, with good reasons.
I don’t disagree with Vino – that Obama could have shored up his economic credentials than foriegn policy expertise. But according to the polls, Obama is more trusted on the economy and McCain more on foreign policy. So it makes sense for Obama to focus on his perceived weak spot.
