The Obama campaign made it official on Tuesday: Vice President Joe Biden will host a campaign rally in Tampa, Fla on Monday.  Additional details will be announced later.  

Biden's appearance is notable in that it will be held in the same city and at the same time as the Republican National Convention, which kicks off on Monday.


Nothing further at TPM, but I'll add this: the really delicious thing, above and beyond Joe baiting the GOP lion in its den, is that it will obviously tempt Team Romney to send Paul Ryan to Charlotte.

Let's compare and contrast the two candidates and see who does things like taking questions from the press, shall we?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
