Washington: Putting an end to speculation that Barack Obama may opt for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as his running mate in 2012 Presidential polls, the White House has said that Joe Biden will remain the Vice Presidential candidate of the Democratic party.

Such speculation was occurring "only among people who know absolutely nothing about" what they speak, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said on Friday.

Carney affirmed that Obama and Biden will "be on the ticket next year" and voiced confidence that they will be taking the oath of office in January 2013.

He was responding to a question on the possibility of the Obama-Clinton team in the 2012 polls, amid speculation that the President may dump Biden.
