I’m guessing Joe Biden will be Barack Obama’s running mate

Tomorrow, Barack Obama announces through an e-mail whom he will be selecting as his running mate. My guess is that it will be Delaware senator Joe Biden. Biden is said to be strong on defense issues, as strong as a Democrat can be.

A smart choice? Not so sure. Granted, Obama is in way over his head and is woefully short on experience, but wouldn’t it be better to pick a popular Democrat from the South? Except for Maryland, I don’t think the Democrats have won a southern state since the 1996 elections. Remember: in 2000 Al Gore became the first presidential candidate since George McGovern in 1972 to lose his home state (Tennessee); in 2004, John Kerry lost North Carolina despite having Tarheel State Senator John Edwards as his running mate.

Honestly, it doesn’t really matter. Unless John McCain picks a pro-abortion running mate, I’m 100% certain I’ll vote for McCain. Then, I’d have to do some serious thinking.
