Morning folks...
The candidates for President have been chosen...now comes the toughest part. Senators Barack Obama and John McCain must pick a running mate.....and the stakes could NOT be higher. Obama says "The vice presidency is the most important decision that I'll make before I'm President." McCain says "you have to share the principles the values the goals...but also the priorities." Priorities that didn’t matter as much before. Jonathan Martin, Senior Political Reporter from Politico, says "for years, the joke was VP wasn't worth a bucket of warm spit." Now, it’s a whole new ballgame...
In the past, naming a vice presidential candidate did not seem as crucial as it does now. So what's changed? Well, the race is tight and voters have valid concerns about each candidate. For Obama, it's all about his resume.
