Obama would fare better against McCain with Hillary, even though he'll still lose
Barack Obama has chosen Joe Biden as his running mate. What a slap in the face for Hillary Clinton with all of her experience and voter support as she made an historic run for the Democratic presidential nomination with bigs wins in states like Pennsylvania and Texas.
Joe Biden at the age of 30 became one of the youngest to be elected to the U.S. Senate. He ran for the 1988 presidency and eventually dropped out of the race. Again this time around, he made made an attempt at running for president. If you might recall, during the debates he had words for Barack Obama, saying the younger Illinois senator was not ready to be president. I agree that Barack Obama is inexperienced. Biden also said during the earlier debates that he would be honored to join McCain and praised McCain for his patriotism and his experience with foreign policy.
Biden attended Syracuse Law School and go into serious trouble when he plagiarized a speech by Neil Kinnock, a British Labor Party leader.
Obama picked Biden for his 35 years of experience as a senator in Washington and I applaud him for that. However, if Obama is preaching change, why would he choose a long-time Washington insider like Biden? Obama lacks experience and Biden has the track record for foreign affairs. Therefore, it takes two Democrats to make one John McCain who has it all -- military experience, Washington political experience, foreign policy expertise, etc.
Mr. Obama, I think Hillary Clinton would have been a much better choice, but you still don't hold a candle to Sen. John McCain. You may think you won a battle, but you will surely lose the war.
