What must be running through his head right now? I mean, this is it. This is his shot. What does one think about at a time like this?
Of course, if Obama gets elected and reelected, Biden would be 73 at that point, so he’s probably not going to run for President. In other words, “VP” would probably be his job description until retirement. That’s the decision this guy is making right now. And being a VP is historically a very thankless task, although Cheney obviously changed all that. And Biden certainly seem to be more in the Cheney mold than say Gore or Bush Sr.
In any event, ABC has the details…
The United States Secret Service has dispatched a protective detail to assume the immediate protection of Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., a source tells ABC News, indicating in all likelihood that Biden has been officially notified that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, has selected him to be his running mate.
By the way, Hillary has been notified she’s not the gal.
This leaves almost nobody else except for Biden.

An Obama-Biden “ticket brand” would exude: persuasive public speaking, daring but calculated in foreign policy, full of progressive solutions and aimed at changing all the â€œmalarkeyâ€ in Washington.
