Obama picks Biden for running mate
Barack Obama named Senator Joe Biden of Delaware as his vice presidential running mate on Aug. 23, turning to a seasoned congressional veteran well-versed in foreign policy and national security issues to blunt Republican attacks on his lack of experience in these areas.
Across more than 30 years in the Senate, Biden has served at various times not only as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee but also as head of the Judiciary Committee, with its jurisdiction over anti-crime legislation, Supreme Court nominees and Constitutional issues.
Biden, 65, also could help attract working class votes－a weak area for Obama. Biden is a Catholic with blue-collar roots and a generally liberal voting record. He has twice run for president.
Obama's campaign arranged a debut for the newly minted ticket on Aug. 23 outside the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois, where Obama launched his presidential campaign in February 2007.
