Biden as Obama's VP candidate

I haven't really looked into the different possibilities for Obama's VP position, but I'm fairly pleased with the choice of Biden. He is not as progressive as some would have liked, but he is solid on the fundamentals.

He is for womens' right to choose, he's against abstinence-only education, torture, and the Guantanamo camp. He believe alternative energy is the way to go, and that the US should lead the effort in fighting Global Warming.
He did vote for the Iraq War, but he changed he decision later, and now opposes it. And unlike other politicians, he has a son in Iraq, so it's personal to him.

What do other people think - is this a bad decision, or is it a good choice?

Ed Darrell thinks it's good choice

It's a pretty solid choice. I thought it might be him or Richardson, and I've got no complaints. Sure, it might have been someone more progressive, but assuming progressives aren't idiots they won't vote for McCain, and Biden brings stuff to the table to please undecided moderates.
