Speaking in North Carolina, Democrat VP Nominee Joe Biden tells voters why they should vote for his running mate:
Charlotte, N.C. — Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says electing a black person to the White House would be transformative.
Biden, campaigning in Charlotte, said Sunday that choosing a black candidate would be a “transformative event in American politics and internationally.”
His running mate, Barack Obama, seeks to be the first black president in the United States. Biden said Obama’s policies make his presidency even more transformative.
Maybe it’s just me, but doesn’t it sound like Biden is telling North Carolina voters to pick Obama simply because he’s black? It’s nice to know that Obama’s running mate thinks that Obama’s main qualification for president is his skin color.
