That's the ticket. (I got the text at 3:29 AM.)
I was enthused by precisely none of the candidates, and Biden brings with him some baggage that I worry about (mainly the history of saying bizarrely offensive things), but as these things go, it's a not-awful choice. The Republican oppo dump was going to come, regardless.
MSNBC's focusing on Biden's comments about Obama's experience, which I think are fairly easy to overcome, because you have the guy who said them there to rebut them. The AP's Ron Fournier writes another part of the McCain campaign pushback - Obama's scurred.
Lynn Sweet is also on MSNBC declaring that the Obama campaign has broken a social contract with his supporters because the Veep pick may have been confirmed before the text message went out. Bloggers will also be angry. Digital blood will stain the streets!
