"First of all, I don’t know the governor. There’s no reason not to respect her and I believe she’s qualified to be the vice president."

That's what Joe Biden said.

Nothing, of course. Nor was there anything wrong when he said that Obama wasn't qualified to be president.

Well, this man says (at about the 1:30 mark) that Sarah Palin was on Obama's VP list. So it must be true!
