Mr. Biden has extensive background in various areas that will give more weight to the oval office. He is a good "behind the scenes" kind of person who is unlimited.

Yeah, I'm thinking Biden. Otherwise he will have to go negitive, and thats what the GOP wants .

Besides, didn't Kaine kill Able. LOL!

Joe Biden would make a good hatchet man. Democrats have usually failed to fight fire with fire. This is no time for softness.

Sam Nunn.

Hillary is definitely out, so that leaves Biden. Biden is a tough experienced politician who could handle the job.

All of my fingers and toes are crossed for JOE BIDEN. Otherwise, I think Barak's doomed.

Barak Obama has, yet once again, shown us his exceptional judgment in chosing Joe Biden as his running mate, who, like Obama, has spent his life walking with the common man and has never lost the common touch. Something the republicans, apparently, know nothing about.

What a fantastic opportunity for this country to have two men like Obama/Biden who will put the American people before themselves.

Let's hope we FINALLY GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME and elect OBAMA/BIDEN in November!!
