Vice Presidential Candidates

With just a few months until the 2008 Presidential Election, Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama on August 23, 2008, announced Sen. Joe Biden, D-Dela., as his running mate. Biden, who beat out prospective candidates Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine for a spot on the ticket, is 65 years old, has served in the Senate since 1972 and is an expert on foreign policy.


Republican Presidential hopeful John McCain on August 29, 2008, announced Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. Palin, who is 44, beat out former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut, to secure the nomination. Since being elected governor in 2006, Palin has focused on energy and natural resources policy. She is the first woman to be nominated for vice president as a Republican and the second woman to run for vice president on a major party ticket.
