Gail Collins, editorial writer for the New York Times, wrote about Barack Obamaâ€™s promise to bring us all together. Did we think, she asked, that he would bring us all together in left field?
I am happy and relieved that Obama chose Senator Joe Biden as running mate. Biden is honorable, experienced and has served in the Senate for over thirty years. Senator Obama could have chosen a running mate whose qualification was being opposite, thereby achieving â€˜balanceâ€™. That seems to be the quick and dirty method the News uses to avoid the hard work of actually reporting. Flat earth vs Galileo. We report, you decide.
I think Senator Obama made a good choice. I did a quick search and found this. My good friend from Vermont says that she cast her first ever vote for Joe Biden in 1972 and she has never regretted it.
