Barack Obama announced via an early-morning text message that Senator Joe Biden will be his running mate. What do you think?

"Really? Biden is the ultimate Washington insider. Obama should've picked somebody who knows absolutely nothing about politics."

"That's some smart thinking. Biden should poll very well with mainstream blacks who are articulate."

Kari Brecht • Theologist

"Cool! Biden is from where my credit card's from."
