And so it is revealed – Barack Obama has chosen Sen. Joe Biden to be his running mate in the 2008 US National Elections, ending weeks of intense speculation and secrecy.
While I do not have issues with the qualifications of the Senator from Delaware (who has been in the US Senate longer than I have been alive), I am dismayed with the selection. I was expecting a radical choice from the person who calls himself an agent of change (such as Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, one of those listed for consideration – unknown in these parts of the world but, hey, that’s the point), and yet the choice represents the status quo.
I wanted Hillary to win. Oh, well. For as long as it’s not another Republican.
