Biden said the Democratic campaign was not criticizing Palin over her family.

"It is off limits to talk about her family," the Delaware senator said in an interview with "Fox and Friends" on Fox News Channel. "Every family has difficulty as they're raising their children. I think the way she's handled it has been absolutely exemplary."

Asked if some of the criticism aimed at Palin has been sexist, Biden said: "Yes, by you guys in the media."

Unfortunately, the left takes it's marching orders from moveon.org and daily kos, not from joe biden. This is only the beginning.

They already stated that families were off limits on any of the candidates. Do they have to repeat themselves?

I have never thougt of Biden as a bad man, and that was a smart move on his part, really brings up his appeal. Truly that should have come from the mouth of Obama but hey what can you do.

What I am trying to figure out is how they are going to provide secret service detail to her son that leaves on 9/11 and McCains Son that leaves on 12/25

Biden is just repeating what BO said about it when the news first broke. Nothing new here.

Re: secret service for the sons in service. Really? I didn't think they would have any. But now that you mention it I can understand why but definitely not how.

Do they still get Secret Service protection if they're over 18?

I was wondering the same thing - similar situation of the British Royals. How do they protect them and their platoon? If mom/dad gets elected, doesn't it put a target on their backs?

According to the Secret Service website, children up to age 16 are entitled to protection. Chelsea somehow qualified for additional protection because of her participation in her mother's campaign.

Biden is only saying that because he doesn't want anyone to say anything about his Son and Brother who are both on the verge of being indicted!
