Obama Chooses Sen. Joe Biden as Running Mate

In a text message and e-mail to supporters early this morning, Sen. Obama announced Sen. Joe Biden as his choice for vice presidential running mate.

Time reports that, "The six-term Senator from Delaware is strongest in areas where the freshman from Illinois is weakest. Biden's tenure in the Senate, his foreign policy expertise, his religion, and his suburban middle-class background, all fill gaps in Obama's own presidential profile."

Biden will appear for the first time with Obama at a rally in Springfield, IL where Obama first started his campaign 19 months ago. They will then tour through swing states on their way to the DNC convention where they will accept their party's nomination on Thursday.
