Barack Obama and Biden–the magic tandem
August 23, 2008 § Leave a comment
Barack Obama just chose Senator Joe Biden as his official running mate. Biden, a veteran legislator, is being packaged as a foreign policy expert. He and Obama have been buddies in the US Senate foreign policy committee. Obama supporters expect him to provide experience and learned guidance to the young Democratic presidential contender.
Some analysts are criticizing Obama for picking Biden, but for me, Biden is the most logical choice for Barack. Biden is an idealist and what’s more, he’s a dedicated public servant with a clean record and a doer. He’s expected to provide Obama with learned counselling whenever the president needs him. This early, I expect them to be a fantastic team.
Meanwhile, talks abound that Republican presidential bet John McCain will pick Liebberman as his running mate. If McCain does that, he’ll further erode the people’s confidence on him as president. McCain should pick a younger vice president, to counteract criticisms that he’s too old. The choice however, according to US analysts, is between Mike Huckabee or Mitt Romney. Between the two, Huckabee seems to be the likely candidate for McCain.
What do you think? September is just around the corner and the Republicans should act fast to erode the huge margin that the Obama campaign has already established.
