UPDATE: White House says it has no intention of getting rid of Vice President Joe Biden.

Could today be the day? Speculation has taken the web by storm that President Obama could replace Vice President Joe Biden with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. After the Vice President’s history of embarrassing and sometimes hilarious gaffes, President Obama has said that Biden distracts from his message. In regard to Biden’s phrasing that Romney’s polices would “put y’all back in chains” Obama took to Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, saying that:

What Joe Biden was talking about again is an example of a substantive argument — a substantive issue, that the American people should be concerned about — and his phrasing is a distraction from what is at stake
