Obama Supporter mixes up Biden and McCain
Florida resident, Jim Piccillo, mixed up Joe Biden and John McCain while introducing the Vice Presidential candidate at a Tampa, Florida rally. Piccollo had been invited to do the introduction after he had crossed party lines to support Barack Obama.
"Are you ready for the change that we all need?" Jim Piccillo asked, as he warmed up the Tampa crowd for Biden. "Then no matter what your party, gender, or race or religion, help me today in welcoming the next vice president of the United States ... John McCain!"
It's unclear whether anyone in the crowd could hear the flub. Biden greeted the audience and took the stage all the same. He didn't mention it in his speech.
Piccillo later told The Tampa Tribune he didn't even know he had said "John McCain" until he heard it on the radio driving home with his girlfriend.
"I screamed, 'I can't believe I did that,'" he told the Tribune.
