Lib Dick Durbin Will Replace Joe Biden Tonight in Prime-Time Speaking Slot

They just didn’t trust Joe not to screw it up.
Dick Durbin will replace Joe Biden tonight in the prime-time speaking slot introducing Barack Obama.
Roll Call reported, via Weasel Zippers:

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) will introduce President Barack Obama during prime time this evening at the final night of the Democratic National Convention.

Vice President Joseph Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, will address delegates at the Time Warner Cable Arena during the 9 p.m. hour, convention organizers announced. And no one is more disappointed about Biden’s speaking slot than Republicans, who have taken to Twitter to campaign for the gaffe-prone vice president to speak during the nationally televised 10 p.m. hour instead.
