Where is Joe Biden?

I've been seeing Palin campaigning with McCain everywhere on the news and then when they talk about Obama that is all I see....where is Biden his running mate for Vice President? Shouldn't he be campaigning along Obama?

  • Who? Sorry. I LOVE Obama but not that big a fan of Biden. But I guess that's who he chose so I can't help that.

  • I don't know. I was laughing with her. Biden has been sort of below the radar even before the loss of his MIL. (My sympathies to him and his family on that.) I just assume he's tucked away because he has a propensity to stick his foot in his mouth. He's already restated his ticket's position on a few issues (clean coal comes to mind) and pronounced better people for his job than himself. Perhaps they dont' take him out much for self-preservation.

  • Palin has been with John McCain on the trail for two reasons: They don't much trust her on her own and she helps McCain bring in crowds. When Biden isn't taking a few days off for a death in the family or to see his son off to Iraq, he has been out on the trail on his own, which is pretty normal for a VP candidate. The tandem campaigning that McCain/Palin are doing is very unusual.

  • i'll never figure you guys out. on one hand, people wonder what palin is doing out campaigning while she's got a lot of babies to take care of at home...then on the other hand, biden is home for a few days, because of family, and people wonder why he's not out campaigning. ...confusing.
