Activity at the Bidens

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="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!

    If the choice is Biden, it is an outstanding choice ! There is no one better suited to step in and boost Obama's campaign than Joe Biden....................He will really take it to the republicans big time !

    Obama can kiss my vote goodbye if he doesn't pick Hillary Clinton. I will be writing her name on the ballot in November.

    now it is time to go to bed. i am glad it is Biden. see you all in the morning. this team will be formidable one. Obama will continue his positive , civil message. Biden will chew McCain like a paper shredder.

    Go ahead and write in Hillary's name and waste your vote. It'll be counted as other and won;t matter anyway. Go ahead and vote McCain, you know you want to anyway. I don't think even HRC on the ticket would have changed your minds.

    I'd love to see you 'ballot writers' figure out how to write-in on a voting machine.

    No threats for VP from you closet repubs.

    OH NO!

    I had a lot of money and credibility riding on it being Bayh or Kaine!

    They would be much better choices than the prolix and "articulate" Biden!

    I am so excited! I don't think I am going able to sleep tonight. This is going to be the best week ever!!!!!!

    I just spent the last 8 years on the moon and the earth looks just stunning from there. You get this wonderfull clarity. You should try it some time.
    I had to mail my 2004 ballot with my vote for Bush the day after both Bush and Kerry were officially nominated, mail takes a long time from the moon.
    I'm back on Earth now though, now internet connection on the moon.

    What's with all these bashers of Senator Obama? You are filled with so much hatred and arrogance, its just amazing. It really is putting me off your party.

    Stop yelping all you jackals!!!
    It is all about Barack Obama and his dreams for America. Go for it whoever he picks as his vice president. He will choose the man.
    Obama 08!!

    If Biden is the pick, well, I know people who will be happy, but I don't see it as helping win, and that's the only criterion I have for a VP pick.

    How about Hillary for Secretary of Health?
    That would give her the opportunity to finally implement the much needed Health care reform that she and Bill always promised, but were never able to deliver on. With Obama in the White Hose and a Democrat Senate and Congress, it could happen now and she could take the credit.
    Would you diehard Hillary supporters really prefer more Republican incompetence and corruption over the next for years, rather than an Obama administraton that included the Clintons?

    Biden is one of the few people that would make me strongly consider voting Obama. Joe has a great record of public service and was my choice to be our next president.

    Oh please! Biden is as old as McCain! This is change????
    I don't think so.... politics as usual. You Obamafans just don't get it do you? He's a career politician!!!! Biden AND Obama! How's that 'change' gonna work out for you? It's not. Obama is lame. He's a joke.

    Whatta ya know, Joe?
    Apparently, quite a lot.
    Take care not to show up your running mate
    While coverin' the number two spot.

    A Senator with more negative comments about Obama than McCain = Biden. Not to mention that Biden got " the most important" decision wrong.

    Most importantly if this happens – the Democratic ticket looks backwards. The experience needs to be at the top of the ticket.

    Uhhh...Lisa. You can't write in a Vice Presidential candidate. They call it a 'ticket' because you have to vote for both or neither.
    I hope you do more homework before you actually vote for who will be my next president.
