Joe Biden Named Vice President-To-Be by Barack Obama
Barack Obama has selected Joe Biden as his vice presidential running mate. The selection was made known officially to "key supporters" by SMS text message around 3:00 AM this morning and confirmed on the campaign's web site shortly afterwards, distinguishing Biden as the first candidate for Vice President in the United States to be announced by text message. It is not known if Obama was driving or still at the club at the time he sent the text.
