Biden's change of address

Joe Biden's Web site now redirects to Barack Obama's.

Joe Biden's Web site now redirects to Barack Obama's.

DENVER (CNN) - In cyberspace, Joe Biden’s presidential campaign once had its own Web address where the Delaware senator made his own case for why he should be the Democratic nominee.

Type in Biden’s Web address now, and Barack Obama’s presidential campaign Web site appears, featuring a request for visitors to "Take a minute to share a personal note welcoming Joe to our movement for change.”

Of course, in return for that personal note, well-wishers are greeted with a slightly less personal appeal for campaign cash.

    Well Hillary, guess your heel's are in solid ground now. Hope you get the message people do not and did not want the Clintons part of the White House ever again. This is the truth once and for all Hillary was not chosen. Well womens libers what are you going to do now?

    What a joke this election is going to be. Obama has made a very big mistake that will cost him the Presidency. Obama will lose in November against McCain and whomever is his VP.

    I am one of the Hillary Clinton supporters that instead of voting for Obama or sitting this election out, will vote for McCain to help America elect McCain for our next President.

    Shouldn't the headline say "Biden's change of address"? Thanks, CNN

    Congratulations Joe Biden at least you beat out the Clintons. Great job. Hope you do the right thing for your country, as people are depending on you. You are the right choice and I am a registered republican. However, I do not support all of McCains ideas. It is hard to believe that the Mccain family (Cindy) has inherited every bit of her money from her wealthy family and she did not even have the courtesy to help her sister sho do not get 1cent. How can we expect someone like her to be a first lady and help any part of the world. She is not going to do one prosperous thing for our country or any other as far as that goes. Anyone that will not help their family is low life.

    Isn't this what its all about. Out to get our money. I was hoping that this year we could find someone who was really on our side. Guess there must not be anyone out there like that anymore. Obama for himself and Biden for keeping Obama off the sands of Hawaii. what a joke. But the laughs are on us. God Bless America

    Republicans will portray this choice as a "weakness," when in fact, it shows both strength and intelligence. Smart and effective executives always know to "hire" to their weakness. Thank God Obama has the wisdom to know this and show the confidence to act upon it. Biden is a great choice!!!

    Yep this is really news, CNN has become a tabloid. They don't report the news just report every detail on Obama they can find. And unlike what people say its mostly negative. Then they just report the talking points from each campaign with no analysis.

    I really think Barack and Joe will be able to work together for all Americans.
    I wonder if Mitt Romney's fluff will overcome Joe Biden's substance.

    Is this suppose to be a surprise? Is there any candidate in any race at anytime that does not ask for donations? The Hipocracy of this article is laughable.

    "Of course, in return for that personal note, well-wishers are greeted with a slightly less personal appeal for campaign cash."
    What, Mark Preston? Did you think Presidential Campaigns were run on hope and rainbows and lollypops?
    Don't act indignant and shocked when a political campaign asks you for money. You think McCain sends out e-mails and makes videos so people will send him gumdrop smiles and happy unicorn kisses? NO, HE WANTS MONEY TOO.

    AWESOME is the only word to say how Obama MANAGES his presidential campaign. This is indicative of the thorougness and attentitve to detail you want in a Manager of the United States. McCain is trying hard to follow in his footsteps as is the errant Pres. Bush but they just can't seem to hit the mark. This is why America MUST pull together and give this DEM ticket the chance it deserves to right the wrongs that have been done to us by Bush and 95% with Bush McCain. You think the economy is bad now? Put lying, know nothing, can't remember how many houses McCain in the White House for the next 4 years. Obama is the manager, leader and President we need for this country. Get out and vote!! OBAMA/BIDEN 08

  23. hope took a hit,today..... :(

    i welcomed him to the ticket,then told them i was withholding any more donations,until i see some better judgement on change.if they join the mccain camp on the lo-road.i may become disenfranchised with this supposedly 'new' kind of politics.i'm not a hillary supporter either,so dont blame it on her.i wanted wesley clark, who has the same integrity that obama has shown throughout, until this point.general clark has more to offer and he's definitely not an insider.he is a better expert on europe and the military.he's a bigger hero than mccain will ever be thought of as being.while mccain was languishing in the hanoi hilton,clark was leading troops in battle on the ground sustaining 4 gunshot wounds yet still direct his troops until they overcame their viet cong attackers.beat that granpa mcsimpson!

    Did someone actually get paid to report this jaw dropping news and write this striking article?

    It's politics as usual. Two big mouths don't make a president. By the way how does Caroline Kennedy fit in the picture vetting for v.p. she should keep her 2 cents at home, in her own mansion.
