By the time the emails and text messages were officially sent out, most people already had a good idea that Senator Barack Obama had selected Senator Joe Biden (D-Delaware) to be his Vice Presidential running mate.
2 on the Beat heard this Saturday from a few delegates who are preparing to travel to Denver to attend the National Democratic Party Convention.
Most believe that Senator Biden, with his foreign affairs experience, will help balance the ticket.
A few are disappointed that Senator Hillary Clinton was not selected.
Meanwhile Harris County Democratic Party Chair Gerry Birnberg released the following statement:
“With Joe Biden, Barack Obama has made an excellent choice for Vice President. Senator Biden is a dedicated public servant, who brings a wealth of experience to the Democratic ticket. He is widely respected as a leader on foreign policy and international relationships and is one of the nation’s leading experts on terrorism. Joe Biden has worked tirelessly to make our communities safer and will reinforce Senator Obama’s message of change that so many voters want.”
