Joe "O'Biden" On Cheney's Endorsement Of McCain

From CBS News' Ryan Corsaro:

(MARION, OH) - Joe Biden told supporters in Ohio that putting John McCain in the White House would guarantee four more years of "clinging" to George W. Bush's economic policies.

"I watched on the bus coming over on the television I have on the bus. Just today, Vice President Cheney came out and endorsed John McCain," said Biden. "Folks, if you need any more proof!"

He walked on stage in the Marion Harding High School gym and held up a white t-shirt he had been handed by the state's lieutenant governor.

"It says, 'Obama, O'Biden, Ohio, '08'!" announced Biden to cheers from the crowd of around 400 people. "Well, I'm Joe O'Biden!"

Biden has been called by that name before, when people, including Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., have jumbled his name and Barack Obama's when introducing him at rallies.

"They say 'And the next vice president…uh…Joe O'Biden! I mean, Bara…Joe Biden!'"

Ohio has, by far, been the state Biden has campaigned in the most, spending over a dozen days and holding twenty events since September.

He holds an outdoor rally in Bowling Green this evening before flying to Tallahassee, Fla., for Sunday events.
