Top secret no more! The media cracked the case early, according to the Los Angeles Times; Obama’s camp confirmed his VP running mate will be Joseph R. Biden Jr. The announcement was confirmed around midnight Pacific time.
How Did The Media Crack The Case?
They did what any good detective does; they pointed the finger at who they thought would be the VP pick. Which all eyes were on Biden after several media sources said he was the man! The media staked out Biden and two others they felt could be selected as Obama’s running mate. It was even discovered that Hillary Clinton was NOT on the short list because she was never ever vetted for VP consideration! Ouch, that hurts every time I think about it.
What about Obama’s supporters being the first to know? Getting text messages and email first! The media cracked the case and it was just too late.
Obama Text Message Said:
“Barack has chosen Senator Joe Biden to be our VP nominee,” the text message said. “Watch the first Obama-Biden rally live at 3 p.m. ET on www.BarackObama.com. Spread the word!”
Biden is a veteran senator with deep expertise in international relations and seems like such a perfect match for Obama!
