Having a running mate prone to very un-politically-correct comments like the "articulate and clean" statement and the "Indian accents in 711" help Obama, not hurt him.

Obama can just kind of hang out and keep up the Hope and Change spiel to try and get us college kids to wake up before noon on the 4th.

BTW, McCain has ran almost a perfect campaign with the exception of 1 or 2 flubs. The Magic Negro has so many that the Repubs will run out of ad money before they expose all of them.
Old Joe need to go to pretty boy's barber cause he looks like shit with hair growing over his ears. Not VP material if you ask me.

Looks like blinky and Biden have a lot in common, lies and exaggerations.
The tape, which was made available by C-SPAN in response to a reporter’s request, showed a testy exchange in response to a question about his law school record from a man identified only as ”Frank.” Mr. Biden looked at his questioner and said: ”I think I have a much higher I.Q. than you do.”
He then went on to say that he ”went to law school on a full academic scholarship - the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship,” Mr. Biden said. He also said that he ”ended up in the top half” of his class and won a prize in an international moot court competition. In college, Mr. Biden said in the appearance, he was ”the outstanding student in the political science department” and ”graduated with three degrees from college.”In his statement today, Mr. Biden, who attended the Syracuse College of Law and graduated 76th in a class of 85, acknowledged: ''I did not graduate in the top half of my class at law school and my recollection of this was inacurate.''
As for receiving three degrees, Mr. Biden said: ''I graduated from the University of Delaware with a double major in history and political science. My reference to degrees at the Claremont event was intended to refer to these majors - I said 'three' and should have said 'two.' '' Mr. Biden received a single B.A. in history and political science.
Mr. Biden acknowledged that in the testy exchange in New Hampshire, he had lost his temper. ''I exaggerate when I'm angry,'' Mr. Biden said, ''but I've never gone around telling people things that aren't true about me.'' Mr. Biden's questioner had made the query in a mild tone, but provoked an explosive response from Mr. Biden. 'Legitimate Questions of Press'
As for the continued, minute probing of his past, Mr. Biden told The Times: ''I guess every single word I've ever said is going to be dissected now.''

Romney is no more a robot than Biden. In fact, Romney actually has a record of achievements outside of winning a popularity contest every six years, which pretty much sums up Biden's adult life. In addition to executive experience as the governor of a fairly large state, he has been an extremely successful entrepreneur and business executive. At the top of the ticket, McCain comes off as passionate and committed, while Obama comes off as a very cool punk who has never actually done anything except spout empty rhetoric. It's an easy choice.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

I was hoping for Hillary to be the pick, but then, that's who I wanted to get the nomination to begin with.
I'm a faithful democrat and I don't like Biden, so I think this could cost Obama big in November.
Should Obama lose this fall, she's free to run in 2012, though.

To HRC holdouts: I will never vote for Sen. Clinton if this election
is lost to the Democrats because of you guys. When you come looking for my vote some years from now, I will remember this and how destructive you were. I am a 62 year old female. Beyond childbearing. Why should I care if you have the right to decide the fate of your own body. It is not my problem anymore. If you blow this opportunity this year, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. I WILL NOT FORGET.
