National NEWS Flash; It’s Biden!

What’s Wrong With This Picture?
Illinois’ junior United States Senator and presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Barak Obama, right, selected a fellow Senator, six-term Joe Biden, left, of Delaware as his vice-presidential running mate late Friday night according to the Associated Press quoting multiple Democratic officials.

The Obama campaign has not confirmed the story and is poised to simultaneously text message contributors before the official announcement Saturday in Springfield, Ill.

The choice of Biden, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations, and Judiciary Committees, put an end to the speculation that Obama would choose one of his closest former challengers. Biden had been in the Democratic primary race but faired poorly. Senator Hilary Clinton of New York, left, was Obama's strongest rival. New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, right introducing the Senator as the next President of the United State when Obama was in Albuquerque Monday at Rio Grande High School town hall meeting.

Richardson confirmed receiving a call Friday evening from Obama telling him he was not the vice-presidential choice according to Joe Monahan.

So what’s wrong with this picture?

Richardson, seen third from the left, with fellow Democrats: Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chávez, New Mexico junior Sen. Jeff Bingaman, and on the Governor’s, right, New Mexico Rep. Tom Udall the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retirement of Republican Sen. Pete Domenici. Richardson seemed very relaxed as he stretched his feet out beyond the curtain in front of him.

Maybe it’s just, “the agony of da feet?”
