So, what was the impact on Democratic unity from the Biden pick?
John McCain is certainly betting on it and he's trying to nurse disunity along with an ad saying that Clinton was dissed. But what do the first polls show?
Gallup found that, among Democrats
21% say they are more likely to vote for Obama as a result of Biden's presence on the ticket, and only 2% say less likely.
You heard that - that's a 19 point pick up (21 minus 2) for Obama among Democrats with the Biden pick. Only 2% are less likely to vote for him.
Props to Democratic unity!
