Activity at the Bidens

Watch the VP stakeouts on

Watch the VP stakeouts on

(CNN) - After hours staking out Joe Biden's Delaware home with no sign of the prospective VP candidate, reporters are now witnessing a flurry of activity.

Cars have recently pulled into the driveway - including a police car - and Biden's daughter, son, and wife are now believed to be inside.

Is the Delaware Democrat gathering his family ahead of a big announcement?

Stay tuned!

    Biden is amusing, and that's about all I can say. If he's the one, Obama is going to need a lot of help to get elected. With Hillary he would have stood a better chance.

    It's interesting how the media acts like all this is so silly, but the only silly ones are the media. They are so desperate to say anything that they spend hours talking about the same mindless rumors. There are so many things going on in this Country and World that are newsworthy, so just wait until tomorrow and stop this childish behavior.

    I don't really care who Obama names as his running mate. I can't wait to get ino the voting booth in November and vote against that empty suit, He is by far the most unqualified person ever to run for president.

    I think Biden is another Dick. After this announcement more of Hillary supporter going to vote for McCain because Obama is lied, he said his ready but the real thing is he not ready yet.

    Yay! This makes voting for McCain so much easier!

    The only ones who look more foolish than Barack at this point are the MSM

    Paris makes BOTH Barack and the MSM look, like, TOTALLY STUPID at this point

    EVEN BRITNEY looks smarter than ALL OF THEM at this point!!!!!!!!!!

    Like, at this point, who CARES anymore??????

    It's not Hillary, so the race-card-playing-empty-suit will go DOWN in November

    We PUMA's will MAKE SURE of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bye, bye, Barack – time to go rejoin your racist hate-filled church to make CERTAIN you'll still be a Junior Senator from Chicago

    I'm SURE all those "Christians" will revote you into office

    Setting up stakeouts at the homes of all the VP choices is silly and outlandish. Use the time to research and educate the public of the issues the next president and vice president will face so they can intellectually voice their opinion. Leave the stalking to the paparazzi.

    Well, that's cable news for ya...they have all time in the world to talk about these things as oppsed to nighly news cast. It may have been a little much to have camera crews out there all day. But I'm betting it's Biden now.

    "Is the Delaware Democrat gathering his family ahead of a big announcement?"

    Either that or he's marshalling his forces to attack the media out front.

    To quote Rush Limbaugh, conservatives are saying "Please, please, please, let it be Joe Biden." There's just so much ammo that can be used against this guy.

    I agree with Art that it's not going to be close, but it's going to be the other way. Historically, the Democrat usually has a large lead at this point, then the Republican makes up ground. Even Dole made up a lot of ground from how far behind he was earlier. If it's basically tied right now, I think that means a landslide for McCain. Obama's just got too many negatives.

    We are all playing into the suspense, it is starting to get me down, enough already, get it over with already so the signs can be printed and I can go to sleep peacefuly tonight.. If it is Joe Biden, it is an excellent choice, but not really earth shattering. As for McCain's choice, if he picks Romney, they can have a lot of fun counting how many houses they each own–the rich will rule and us common folks don't stand a chance.

    If he picks Biden, even a Republican like me might be forced to support Obama. Biden's background is one that I can truly identify with- the common man of the race.

    So this is his Delaware home, does that mean he has more than one home? Just curious because I am going to vote for the ticket that owns the most homes. McCain has a big lead though unless Obama's VP has a slew of them. I figure the richest guy is the one who knows the most about the economy. Obama says he knows best about how to fix the economy. But I say show me the money.

    People still use AOL?

    I hope Joe knows how many houses he owns.

    Lest we forget...didn't Joe Biden drop out of the race for president several cycles ago because of plagiarizing speeches this the change we can believe in??

    John McCain 2008!!

    Maybe they're leaving in a police car because you won't let them out of their house without bombarding them with questions you know they won't answer.

    If it's Biden, it's too good to be true. The most arrogant man in the Senate picks the second most arrogant man in the Senate as a running mate!
