This iReport is part of an assignment:
Obama selects Biden
Obama's choice was a very smart one. I have always appreciated Joe Biden's directness and I feel he gives nice balance to the ticket. Obama is smart enough to admit that he doesn't know everything and does have weaknesses and he selected someone who has great knowledge in those areas. The presidential ticket is now very well rounded and I believe the election has just been won by the democrats.
Also, smart move on the announcement. The plan was to build anticipation and they certainly succeeded. Every news channel was "standing by" for the announcement. Had me turning on the news as soon as I woke up to hear it. Kudos!!
