Which Kitchen Will McCain Sit At?
That’s what Senator Barack Obama’s newly nominated Vice Presidential candidate, Senator Joe Biden said today in his introductory speech in Springfield, Illinois.
Joe Biden talked about how Americans, after putting the kids to bed, sit around their kitchen tables to discuss how to pay the bills and send their kids to college. At that point Biden said referencing to McCain’s multiple homes, “He’ll have to figure out which of the seven kitchen tables to sit at.”
That was a great comment and in my view a historical one.
Biden also said, “These times require more than a good soldier,” Biden said. “They require a wise leader.” He went on to describe Obama as “a clear eyed pragmatist who will get the job done.”
“There’s something about Barack Obama”, said Biden. He’s got good judgment, intelligence, courage and a shield in his spine.
Joe Biden quoted Abraham Lincoln, “Be sure to put your feet in the right place and … stand firm.” “Today in Springfield, I know my feet are in the right place, and I’m proud to stand firm with the next president of the United States of America, Barack Obama.”, said Biden.
David Gregory of MSNBC’s ‘Race to the White House’ said something today that I think Senator Obama’s campaign should begin using. He said that Obama is for ‘Change’, Biden knows how to get things done, and he’s the guy to help make Obama’s ideas happen.
Senator Biden will be a great man to have standing my Barack Obama’s side!
