Barack Hussein Obama-Joseph Robinette Biden in 2008

About 7:00 AM PST tomorrow, odds are likely that Delaware Senior Senator Joe Biden will be announced as Barack Obama's running mate.

With Virginia Governor Tim Kaine and Evan Bayh of Indiana being dropped from consideration this evening, ABC News was reporting stepped-up activity at the Biden household and close associates of Biden are quoted as saying that Delaware's longest-serving Senator will be the choice.

Biden, who has been known to provide sound-bites in the bunches, even if the words belong to a former "British Labor Party Official" will bring an extensive foreign policy portfolio to a campaign in need of someone with Biden's background, especially with recent events overseas.

The selection of Biden is remarkable considering that his own 2008 campaign imploded after the Senator made these comments about Obama, this flashback from the New York Observer;

"COULD this be remembered as the first presidential campaign to start and all but end in a day?

Senator Joseph Biden of Delaware, who announced his candidacy with the hope he could ride his foreign policy expertise into contention for the Democratic nomination, instead spent the day struggling to explain his description of Senator Barack Obama, who is running for president, as "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy".

The remark, published on Wednesday in The New York Observer, left Senator Biden's campaign struggling to survive its first hours and injected race more directly into the presidential contest.

The day ended, appropriately enough for the way politics is practised now, with Senator Biden explaining himself to Jon Stewart on Comedy Central's The Daily Show.
In a decidedly non-presidential afternoon conference call with reporters that had been intended to announce his candidacy, Senator Biden, speaking over loud echoes and a blaring television set, said that he had been "quoted accurately".

If Biden is the V.P. selection, then one can say that forgiveness is a virtue for Obama,....especially if you have Foreign Policy background.

Biden spouts off just like Gingrich's mom.

He also said you can't go to a 7-11 without hearing an Indian accent.

How do Democrats - and more importantly Obama - square that?

If John McCain's VP said those same words they'd be screaming for his removal.

Biden's got a point about India. Outsourcing some stuff is okay. But when you call to clear up your record about a bad check someone passed in your name, an old check they found and forged a signature -- but that's enough to mess up your whole credit -- and SCAN just lets you talk to a worker in India who demands all your personals AGAIN to "investigate and we'll let you you in a month," you want to ring SCAN's neck. Not even the decency to let you talk to anyone in America who can expedite it,

You have to give your stuff to some foreigner in a country without our legal protections about fraud, and pray that someone making a hundred bucks a week won't just sell all that info. This kind of sensitive stuff should NOT be handled in India, China or anywhere where fraud is rampant, copyright and privacy laws nonexistent or nonenforcable. All while Americans are unemployed.
