Joe Biden Opposes Prop 8

Democratic running mate Joe Biden will appear on the Ellen DeGeneres' talk show this Monday. During his interview with Ellen, the Senator reportedly takes an unequivocal stand against Proposition 8, the ballot measure looking to overturn California's same-sex marriage win.

Biden also took some time to slam the initiative during an event in West Hollywood last night, according to Variety's website:

"At the event, Biden told IN Los Angeles magazine journalist Karen Ocamb that he opposes Proposition 8, which would ban same-sex marriage in California. He had just finished taping an episode of The Ellen Show that will air Monday, and expressed his opposition to the measure to host Ellen DeGeneres.

At the vice presidential debate with Sarah Palin, Biden said that he opposes same-sex marriage. Obama holds the same position, but also has said he opposes Proposition 8, citing the fact that it would write a restriction into a state constitution.

Biden plead with the crowd gathered at the $500-per-person fund-raiser at the Pacific Design Center to talk to their friends and family and 'make the case for us.'

'There's a great deal at stake, so my plea to you is, we have less than three weeks to go, so this is the time to focus like we never have before.'"
