CHICAGO, Ill., Aug. 23—Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) was announced as Barack Obama's running mate early Saturday, adding an elder statesman of Washington politics to the Democratic ticket just days before the start of the party's convention in Denver.
The Obama campaign sent out a text message to millions of supporters nationwide at about 3:10 a.m. Saturday declaring Biden the choice and inviting people to watch the joint rally they are scheduled to hold at 3 p.m. Eastern time in Springfield, Ill. But news of the selection leaked in the hours before that, as Secret Service agents were dispatched to Biden's home in Delaware and other candidates on Obama's short list of vice-presidential possibilities were informed they had not gotten the job.

I found out that Biden's net worth is only between $150,000-200,000. He's been a public servant his whole life. He doesn't fit in with Obama's purported radicalism but will probably help with the "common man" vote.

He makes $190,000+ in a single year. As of June 2008, his earned income was $298,000 due to his book and guest appearances on tv and such. When you say "net worth" you really have to look closely at the calculation. Does that really promote the "common man" vote?

A stint of publicity shouldn't determine anything. Net worth is the way to go in a lot of cases, it doesn't reflect things like this. http://www.opensecrets.org/pfds/CIDsummary...01669&year=2006
