Obama-Biden: First Impressions

I think Obama's choice of Senator Joseph Biden for his running mate is a good one. Biden has a lot of experience in politics, particulary in international matters, which Obama needs. In short, Biden is older, he's white, he's from the East Coast, and he's experienced, which balances the ticket pretty nicely. I wasn't particularly impressed with him when he was running for President, but I can't argue with what seems to be his good experience. I'll be curious to find out more about him in the coming weeks and months leading up to the election. I'm still not planning on voting for Obama, but having Biden on there makes me a little bit more likely to, and if/when Obama does win, maybe I'll feel better about it with Biden as the Vice President.
