Obama team continues to control access to Biden

"The book covers Mr. Obama's frustration after Mr. Biden's gaffes became too much for the president-to-be to bear. These gaffes included:Mr. Biden's comments that he was more qualified than Mr. Obama to be president, that Mr. Obama would be tested with an international crisis, and that it was patriotic to pay higher taxes.

“How many times is Biden gonna say something stupid?” Mr. Obama angrily asked of his advisors at one point on a conference call. Speaking of conference calls, the book also says Obama campaign manager David Plouffe was questioned about why Mr. Biden was not on the nightly campaign conference call. It turned out the future vice president was on his own conference call with both Mr. Pouffe and campaign adviser David Axelrod."

Keeping the Vice President out of the loop? What does this say about Obama?
