All the presidential candidates had MySpace accounts in 2007 and 2008, because that's what the kids were doing back then. All of those profiles are still around, and like every other MySpace profile, none have been updated since the campaign.
That means that, through all the site's sales, branding changes, system updates, and new templates, none of the presidential candidate's pages have had anyone managing them. Like Joe Biden himself, they just roll with the system's punches. And something amazing has happened.
Folks, we've finally found that spot in Mexico where the Onion said Uncle Joe was laying low for a while. Check out the Veep's page's background image:
It's a similar story of the other candidates, too. Their screenshots are all below the jump, but none are quite as perfect as Joe's - except for Mike Gravel (remember him?)! It would seem he's Uncle Joe's roommate down there in Mexico!
BTW, I love love love that literally as I'm writing this diary, Netroots Nation emailed out to say that Joe Biden will literally be joining us in Detroit next week! Literally, you guys!
(If you're wondering if these are really the old official pages, I can personally confirm that at least for Biden, it is. I was later on the OFA and DNC digital teams, but before that time, I was a big volunteer with Biden's presidential campaign in New Hampshire and coordinated closely with his digital team.)
