Email from Barak Obama:

Kevin,

I’ve chosen Joe Biden to be my running mate.

Joe and I will appear for the first time as running mates this afternoon in Springfield, Illinois — the same place this campaign began more than 19 months ago.

I’m excited about hitting the campaign trail with Joe, but the two of us can’t do this alone. We need your help to keep building this movement for change.

Please let Joe know that you’re glad he’s part of our team. Share your personal welcome note and we’ll make sure he gets it:

Thanks for your support,
Barack

Team-

Just hours ago Senator Barack Obama announced he has chosen Senator Joe Biden as his running-mate, adding his own harshest critic to the Democratic ticket. Senator Obama’s choice in a running-mate once again brings up his questionable judgment when faced with making major decisions.

Senator Biden doesn’t believe that Senator Obama is ready to serve as president. When asked about Senator Obama’s lack of experience he said, “The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.” The fact is, there has been no harsher critic of Senator Obama’s lack of readiness to serve than his new running-mate, Senator Joe Biden.

Senator Biden has long been a leading critic of Senator Obama’s lack of foreign policy experience. He’s criticized Senator Obama for his lack of leadership and judgment on Iraq, Afghanistan and his commitment to meet unconditionally with the leaders of rogue states.

We can’t risk electing Senator Barack Obama in November and you can make a difference today. Will you make an immediate donation of $25, $50, $150, $250, $500, $1,000 or even $2,300 to our campaign? The money we raise today will go directly to getting the word out – when faced with difficult decisions; Senator Obama lacks the judgment to be our next president and he’s simply not ready to lead.

John McCain has made tough, but necessary judgment calls throughout his entire career – always putting country before self interest. He has the experience necessary to serve as our next Commander in Chief. He’s ready to lead – ready to put your needs above his own, but he won’t win in November without your immediate support. Please join our campaign by making a donation right away.

Sincerely,
Rick Davis
Campaign Manager

P.S. Senator Obama has chosen Senator Joe Biden as his running-mate; a man who doesn’t believe he’s ready to lead as president. Senator Obama’s poor judgment calls indicate he’s not ready to lead as president. It’s essential for our next president to have good judgment and to put the needs of others above all else. And that friends, is what John McCain has done and is prepared to do for all of us. Please join us today by making a generous donation to ensure a McCain Victory in November.
