    Well it's sad news. She was more like a mother than a grandmother to him. I don't care what you feel about the man, it sucks to lose your mother. And the day before the election.

    Sometimes irony sucks...:(

    Here's wishing him an easy transition through the grieving process..

    It's weird too. Biden must be reeling. Right before he took high office for the first time he lost a woman close to him and his child. This is just eerie.

    You know if the same thing happened on team McCain I'd hesitate just for a moment before I understood that you were joking...

    sucks to be so close, and not be able to see this day tuesday for Obama win or lose. now those who where coming up with dumb theories as to why Obama went there last week and took a few days of from election know why ...

    Waits for noobama to say its a conspiracy or something fishy about it....but not as a joke.

    His grandma doesnt have anything to do with him or what he is about. She was a nice woman, one of our Greatest generations, a rosie the riviter (spelling) Its a sad day for that family and as much as I dont like him or his policy its still sad when someone loses family.

    If this thread keeps going this way I might close it. I don't think fighting over whos being meaner to Obama's dead grandmother is going to benefit anyone.

    That is sad news indeed. It is such a shame for this woman that she raised this man, and gave so much of her self and time, only to die hours before the biggest day in his life. :(

    I don't however feel for obama as I don't think he gives a flip about her.
