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!

    "McCain for president — a grown-up ready to do a grown-up job!"


    The desperation cascading off the Obama haters fills me with sweet, sweet nourishment.

    Sheesh! If I was one of these VP possibles I'd be afraid to take a leak for fear of seeing a CNN or Fox camera peering through the curtains!

    I guess we'll just have to keep Biden our time....
    (sorry, couldn't help it)

    There must be some other more newsworthy subjects folks. Get a news life!

    Any moment now and the 20 million of us who fully support Hillary Clinton will know what we are doing in the fall. If Hillary Clinton is not on the ticket, we wont be voting for Barack Obama. We could have had it all.

  7. Bayh Bayh Obama

    Who knew Obama was such a big ole drama queen?? He is acting like he's running for president of the JR High School student body! This was fun and exciting for a couple days, but now it's getting older than either McCain or Biden.

    So, Obama has to chose someone who can win him votes and he picks Joe Biden?? Are you kidding me?? Wow...Obamas a smart one!

    Biden offers experience and little more... Hillary offers 18 million strong supporters and experience!! I think Ralph Nader said it best when he said he would be dumb to pick Biden or Bayh..

    Tell me AGAIN why Michelle will be speaking at the Convention??????

    Does she want to let us know that she's REALLY proud of her country again?????????????

    LOL – tough sell after her hate-filled thesis about what a "mean" country we are....the hate-filled thesis she was able to write thanks to Affirmative Action

    Even NASTY Michelle admits she didn't REALLY have the grades to get into an ivy-league school......Wonder HOW she got in there

    LOL!!!!!! No doubt due to reverse-racism!!!!!

    That's the story of NASTY Michelle's life.........USE REVERSE-RACISM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Californian for Obama!

    I signed up for the text message along with all my friends. Republicans know their screwed with the youth generation, and they are shaking in their boots. Not only did I sign up for the text but, I then made my first donation of 25 dollars to Obama. They really sucked me in with the excitement, and I am not really that excitable. I can only imagine the inroads they are making with those more into the political process.

    Any activity at Kaine's house??

    I'm personally hoping that Obama goes against the norm and has a two part announcement, 1) Chet Edwards or Bayh for VP, 2) If elected, Biden will be his Sec. of State. Edwards has foreign policy experience and represents change, while announcing Biden as the Sec. of State would give a third person to fundraise, answers all foreign policy questions, and means that Biden's mouth is less of an issue. Unlikely, but it would be close to flawless.

    Obama is a genius, he's taken control of the news cycle without announcing anything

    RJ, CA,

    Go grow a brain and suck it up after you see your John McDracula lose on November 4th and say hello to your soon-to-be 44th President, Barack Obama :)

    RJ/david jack – Who said it was going to happen today? The media did. The media has been camping out making this whole thing such a big thing to keep us glued to the TV and websites. It worked. It got everyone worked up.

    I do think Biden will make an awesome running mate if it's true.

    Ridiculous. It's like the VP's going to decide the outcome of the election.

    If he picks Biden, Obama will be a hypocrite. Biden is an insider and has been in Washington for more than 30 years. Biden helped to make Washington what it is today. What happened to the idea of changing government.? Obama is proving to be what Rev Wright said he was....just another politician.

    Biden is a good choice, and has attitude enough to be worth all the hype. As for McCain being a "grown up" as suggested by a prevcious post, have you forgotten "bomb bomb Iran" and other silly antics?
