Contact Obama's VP Pick, Joe Biden, with ONE

The following is wording from the ONE campain, but I'd like to add my 2 cents. Joe Biden was one of the heroes of the Lantos-Hyde Act (still looking for the link to the op-ed that talks about that...will post soon). The Lantos-Hyde Act, passed in July, is the biggest global health bill in our nation's history. It tackles the triple threat of AIDS, TB and malaria...three deadly diseases of poverty. The passage of that bill was long and came dangerously close to being hung up in the Senate. And it might have, if Joe Biden hadn't provided leadership to shepherd it through. Many people on both sides of the aisle deserve credit for the success of Lantos-Hyde...and Biden was one of the leaders.
Senator Obama finally announced his vice-president choice, Senator Joe Biden - and I just took action with to make this national political moment a meaningful poverty-fighting moment.

It's important we contact him now, before he gets swept-up in an inevitable blur of coast-to-coast campaigning and crushing national media attention.
