Former President Barack Obama praised Joe Biden for picking Sen. Kamala Harris to be his running mate. Obama said Biden nailed the choice.
In a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, Obama said:
Choosing a vice president is the first important decision a president makes. When you’re in the Oval Office, weighing the toughest issues, and the choice you make will affect the lives and livelihoods of the entire country – you need someone with you who’s got the judgment and the character to make the right call. Someone whose focus goes beyond self-interest to consider the lives and prospects of others.
