The word of a single unamed “Democratic Official” apparently constitutes “Official” to the Associated Press. Hell, I’m game. Sure, its official.
Thank goodness he didn’t select anyone interesting controversial.
The Republicans are going to try hacking the “experience” thing to death using Biden as an in:
No sooner had word spread of his selection than McCain’s campaign unleashed its first volley. Spokesman Ben Porritt said in a statement that Biden had “denounced Barack Obama’s poor foreign policy judgment and has strongly argued in his own words what Americans are quickly realizing – that Barack Obama is not ready to be president.”
As evidence, Republicans cited an ABC interview from August 2007, in which Biden said he would stand by an earlier statement that Obama was not ready to serve as president.
Yes, good luck with that Houses McCain. (Dammit, no one is even sure how many houses that man has.)
If it is going to be McCain/Romney vs Obama/Biden, aside from feeling a little less excited about November, I feel a lot more confident. An Obama Biden team says “Don’t worry, we won’t mess anything up, plus we’ll change a few important things (like say, tackling corruption and restoring a basic respect for the rule of law)”. A McSame Romney ticket doesn’t say anything so much as whisper it in a really creepy corporate monotone: “More War, More National Debt, More Civil Rights Abuses”.
More reasons to fight.
