Analysis: Obama's Biden Pick

Barack Obama has a running mate. The presumptive Democratic nominee, late last night, named Delaware Senator Joseph Biden as the Vice Presidential candidate on the Party's ticket.

The 65-year-old veteran senator has served for more than three-decades, during which he's been chairman of the foreign relations committee, a post he currently holds, and as head of the judiciary committee.

Obama and Biden are set to hold their first joint event midday today in Springfield, Illinois.

We talked to Analyst Steven Stark, who is covering the presidential race for the Boston Phoenix.
