Biden: Palin seems to have ‘extreme views’

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Joe Biden said 'Palin has some very extreme views.'"]

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (CNN) - Joe Biden said Monday that vice presidential opponent Sarah Palin seems to have "some very extreme views."

Speaking to a union crowd in Wisconsin, Biden also said he hasn't heard enough specifics from the Alaska governor, and that he's hoping to learn more about her positions before the two debate October 2.

"Hopefully by the time the debate takes place, we’ll have a better sense of her other than some of what she says and what appear to be some very extreme views," Biden said.

Watch: Palin hits the campaign trail

"I’m assuming that she shares John McCain’s views on most of the issues. And she even says, if the press is correct - and I’m not ready, prepared to make a judgment [on this] - her views on everything from global warming to other things, if they are as presented, they’re pretty far out there."

    She has been on the national scene for what 2 weeks now and atleast she has views(extreme or not), you have been there close to 30yrs and i still am trying to figure out what your views are about anything. I do give you credit for one thing though.. you do stick with what you say unlike Obama who seems to change his stance based on who he is taking to. If it was a Biden/Obama ticket i would have voted for you even with all the short comings but unfortunatly you will be another cheney if obama gets elected.

    Democrat for Mccain!

    Right on target Biden!!

    Palin believes in converting gays, banning books at her local library in Alaska, Iraq debacle was God's will, no abortion EVEN in cases of rape and incest, schools should teach creationism, cut funds for special education, and much much more.

    She is VERY VERY scary...DO NOT FALL FOR THIS BULLCRAP ABOUT HER BEING A MAVERICK!!!!! She is a dangerous, intolerant, ignorant, right-wing religious nutjob!!!!
