White House irked by rumors Obama plans to drop Biden

(By Tina Korbe, Hot Air) - MSNBC’s “Today” attracted a little Twitter ire from White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, after “Today” hosts asked both Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton whether Barack Obama might not strike Biden from the 2012 ticket and add Clinton instead:

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer posted this on his Twitter account Tuesday morning:

“I have noticed a weird @todayshow obsession with faux story of Sec. Clinton replacing @VP…Have asked both about it last 2 days on the show.”

Mr. Biden said he will be on the ticket again.

“Absolutely, positively yes,” the vice president said. “There’s never been a question about that.”
