Who here has personally met Joe Biden? Is he nice or does he act stuck up or anything? Are you going to vote for Obama just because his vp pick is from Delaware?

I for one am voting on the issues and will pick the presidential nominee of my choice.

Oh and I do like Biden but If i vote for Obama, it will be on account of the issues and not the Veep.

I'd vote for Bobo the chimp over another 4 years of George Bush, and that's exactly what McCain has to offer.

Considering my family donates more to charity than Joe Biden - on a fraction of his income - then I have one more reason not to vote for him. There's plenty of other reasons though - not that my Republican vote matters in this solidly Blue state...

For the lazy Joe averages $369/year in charity donations according to USA Today. He could have at least spread some of the money he got from the Banks for his bankruptcy "reform" bill of '05.

I was thinking about voting for McCain so we could get rid of Palin as the governor of Alaska, but I just can't bring myself to vote Republican.

You know while GWB was in the Texas Air National guard, Obama was frolicking in Indonesia and Jane Fonda was posing with Vietcong anti-aircraft gunners, John McCain was being tortured to rat on his friends and say nasty things about his country. Because of this torture he still can't lift his arms up above his neck.

In 2000 John McCain was smeared with some of the most vicious lies ever said by one Republican against another in the South Carolina primary. The lies worked and Bush won, forcing the Senator to give up his quest for the White House.

Now you may not like him because of his party, and you may not like him because of his support for the war in Iraq, but to associate him with Bush and worse, insult him so childishly is really beyond the pale. John McCain is a good man and a good enough Senator of the state of Arizona to have been reelected to his office numerous times.

Are you willing to slander an American hero for your candidate to make it to the White House? Is this how you want to be remembered?

While I have never personally met Joe Biden, Delaware is a small state and many people have. I have heard nothing but good things about him. He's supposedly a very kind-hearted man. He's done a good job for Delaware and I certainly plan to give him and Obama my vote.

Back to the original question.

While I don't know Senator Biden personally, I have met him in passing. He seems to be very pleasant and personable. Of course that's no reason to vote for him. Honestly, who votes for VP anyway? Unless the VP adds balance to the ticket. And no, I wouldn't vote for Senator Biden because he's from Delaware. I personally don't agree with his or Senator Obama's liberal ideology.

It's funny how the current mantra is CHANGE. CHANGE! CHANGE! CHANGE!

Yet on the most important level (i.e. the local level) the same old political hacks get elected year after year. If you want change start locally. Local politics have more affect on your life than National.

I have an idea for change in Delaware. Lets change it from blue to red. I'm sure jskirwin would agree with me.
