Joe Biden Picked as VP: College Democrats’ Statement

Vice Presidential Nominee Joseph Biden
The Time for Change is Now!

After months of speculation the Democratic Party has picked it’s vice presidential nominee. Senator Joe Biden, a University of Delaware alumnus and six-term senator from the First State is now prepared to accept the Democratic vice presidential nomination. Senator Biden’s thirty-five years of experience in the senate will bring about the change our country so desperately needs. Further, Senator Biden has consistently been a warrior for the middle class, the little man, and those without a voice. This commitment to service and doing the right thing for American will only help to ensure that we will change the way business is done in Washington.

Two dreams, one hope. A dream for change driven by the idea that America can once again be the greatest country in the world is now paired with the dream that Delaware can be the greatest State in the union. In their first public appearance together, yesterday in Springfield Illinois, Senator Biden stated that this could be the last chance for us to save our nation and take back our Country. No truer words have been uttered in this election season.

The time is ripe for change, and the opportunity for success has only been strengthened. The College Democrats at the University of Delaware are thrilled at the vice-presidential choice of Senator Barack Obama.
