Obama Announces Biden Will Be Running Mate

Sen. Barack Obama has announced to millions of fans, political junkies, and the media through his Web site and text-messaging that Sen. Joe Biden will be his vice presidential pick. They plan to appear together in public at a rally in Springfield, Illinois later today. This is one form of balancing the ticket: not geographical, but in terms of experience. Biden is respected in Democratic circles for his knowledge of foreign affairs and defense, and could end up being as much of a co-president to Obama as Dick Cheney has been to George W. Bush.
