AP: It’s Biden

The title of their article is this, “Official: Obama picks Biden for veep.”

Well, it doesn’t get more “official” than that.

So Donklephant readers…you get the news before the text message…

WASHINGTON (AP) – Barack Obama selected Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware late Friday night to be his vice presidential running mate, according to a Democratic official, balancing his ticket with an older congressional veteran well-versed in foreign and defense issues. [...]

The official who spoke did so on condition of anonymity, preferring not to pre-empt a text-message announcement the Obama campaign promised for Saturday morning.

Looks like “experience” has won out over “change.”

More as it develops…
