|I don't care what any Democrat says. I still love Chuck Hagel.
You GO, Hagel. I love Biden and have since 1988, but I would have been thrilled to see Hagel as the veep, as well. Moving on: let's hear what Indiana Republican Dick Lugar has to say:
He's not speaking at the Democratic convention and he hasn't (yet) endorsed, but Chuck Hagel continues to provide great fodder for Dems. "Joe Biden is the right partner for Barack Obama. His many years of distinguished service to America, his seasoned judgment and his vast experience in foreign policy and national security will match up well with the unique challenges of the 21st Century. An Obama-Biden ticket is a very impressive and strong team. Biden’s selection is good news for Obama and America."
His paper statement on the Biden pick:
"I congratulate Senator Barack Obama on his selection of my friend, Senator Joe Biden, to be his vice-presidential running mate. I have enjoyed for many years the opportunity to work with Joe Biden to bring strong bipartisan support to United States foreign policy."Okay, let's go for a third: Arlen Specter? You're up:
Pennsylvania's Arlen Specter, a Republican who serves on the Judiciary Committee with Biden and often rides Amtrak with him to Washington, also offered praise. "No one on the Democratic side knows more about foreign policy than Sen. Biden," Specter said. "He's been an articulate spokesman on the subject. He also knows about domestic policy. He's been a leader on crime control."
I wonder if they get to keep their GOP mugs...
