Surprise! It's a campaign switcheroo.
In the upcoming November election, the Democratic ticket will be: Joseph Biden running for president and Barack Obama running for vice-president, not the reverse.
The two men agreed to the switch after Biden apparently "pushed" Obama into the decision to support same-sex marriage. "Sadly," Obama said, "I just couldn't make up my mind until I got that push from Joe. Evolving, evolving, yes. But no cigar. That's what made me realize I'm not up for the top job, but luckily Joe is."
Biden is delighted with the change, saying that once the new regime is in place, he'll be getting a lot more sleep on Sunday mornings. "I hate those early-morning wakeup calls for the news shows," he's told friends.
Biden has already decided on his first two appointments as presidential advisors: 13-year-old Malia Obama and her sister, 11-year-old Sasha. He has said, "When I heard Barack say they had influenced his decision to support same-sex marriage, I knew they had to have a place in MY administration. They have a lot to say and I'll be listening. If I have to ask Congress to declare a war, I'll definitely want those two young ladies at my side."
Meanwhile Biden claimed that there's no truth to the rumor that he was considering, if elected in November, the appointment of teen pop star Justin Bieber as secretary of state. "He DOES have great hair, though," said a jealous Biden, looking in the mirror and checking out his own hair plugs.
