Who should be McCain's running mate?
Change Requires Knowledge
If Obama knows whats good for him, the party, and America, he'll place his bet on Joe Biden. Biden has the foreign policy experience that Obama sorely lacks, and his knowledge of the energy crisis is second to none. Few people in Washington have been there long enough (since '72!) and know more than Biden. He's a tough guy, with years of experience, and the wisdom to consider consequences before decisions are made.
While there are several choices for VP, Biden brings the most to the table BY FAR. Any other choice, facing the issues we're facing, would be flat out foolishness and will cost Obama MANY votes. This decision is a foretelling of how his term as president will be ran - will he preach change and bring nothing but inexperience, or will his change be promoting knowledgeable staff to the position they should have been in years ago? I guess we'll see....one thing's for sure...Biden won't shoot anyone in the face.
