Obama Defends Biden "Chains" Comment, Denies VP Replacement

On Entertainment Tonight, likens the controversy over the chains comments to "the WWF" (wrestling, not the wildlife people) and rejects Sarah Palin's suggestion of replacing Biden with Hillary Clinton


President Obama defended Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday against criticism of his remarks that Republican repeal of Wall Street regulations would put voters "back in chains."

Obama also brushed off Sarah Palin's suggestion on Fox News that he drop Biden from the ticket in favor of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee and a Fox News contributor, had said Biden's comments are the latest example of how he "really drags down that ticket."
