    She is cuter than Palin and way much smarter. Palin is a moose shooter.

    this group is looking the part. They are leading by example. If the people get behind Obamas team I think we will be winners.

    I didn't know Joe Biden changed his name.
    "The veteran professor and wife of Vice President Jill Biden…"

    Haha, great catch there!

    I think it's great that she's going to keep her own identity and not just be the wife of Vice President Biden.

    Excellent news. I'm glad to see that Dr. Biden maintains her desire to educate the youth of today even though she is now in the public spotlight as the vice president's wife. However, the article mistakenly says that she is the wife of Vice-President Jill Biden. I guess even CNN can make a mistake. It only proves that no matter how careful we are, sometimes mistakes slip past a number of people.

    The contrast between Jill Biden and Sarah Palin is remarkable – one has dedicated herself to educating working people, for 30 years, one took 6 years and 3 schools to graduate with a BA in journalism and now dedicates her efforts to promoting herself. Which one is more qualified for the highest office in our land?
