In the shadow of the presidential candidates are their all-important running mates. Opinions may differ over their choice – even from within their own camps – but the fact is either Joe Biden or Sarah Palin could one day become president of the United States of America. For he or she is the first person in the line of succession – should the president die, resign, or be removed from office. On the Republican side Sarah Palin, the virtually unknown governor of Alaska, burst to prominence when she was chosen by Republican John McCain.

On the Democratic side, Barack Obama opted for veteran Joe Biden, a senator with more than three decades of experience. A safe bet for the Democrats, a riskier choice for the Republicans, which some believe will have an influence on the outcome of the vote.
