Obama to Announce Biden as Running Mate

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Democrat Barack Obama has chosen Delaware Sen. Joseph Biden as his vice presidential running mate, CNN said on Saturday, citing several unnamed sources in the Democratic Party.

Biden, 65, is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a highly respected voice on international affairs.

The long-serving senator emerged as a strong possibility after three other contenders -- Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and New York Sen. Hillary Clinton -- reportedly were told they had not been picked.
