On August 24, 2008 Joseph Biden was featured on the homepage of OpenCongress:
In a text message on Saturday, Barack Obama announced that he has chosen Senator <a href="http://www.opencongress.org/person/show/300008_joseph_biden">Joe Biden</a> (D-DE) to be his running mate in the 2008 presidential election. "For months, I've searched for a leader to finish this journey alongside me and join me in making Washington work for the American people. I searched for a leader who understood the rising costs confronting working people and will always put their dreams first," Obama said as he introduced Biden. "Today, I've come back to Springfield to tell you I've found that leader."
