Campaign stays mum on Obamas debate prep

Williamsburg, Virginia (CNN) - When it comes to President Barack Obama’s debate preparations at an idyllic Virginia resort, mum’s the word.

The Obama campaign is going to great lengths to keep details of the president’s activities over the last three days under wraps, refusing to reveal nearly any specifics about how he and his top advisors are preparing for the crucial second debate with rival Mitt Romney Tuesday night.

Biden: No 'character' comparison between Obama, Romney

(CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday that this presidential election comes down to the two top candidates’ disposition, and on that, there is no comparison.

"Every presidential race always comes down to who the American people think possesses the character and conviction," he said at a fundraiser in Connecticut. "It will not surprise you on that score, I don't even think it's close between President (Barack) Obama and Gov. (Mitt) Romney."
