Biden contradicts his Swine flu comment, rides a train

A day after announcing that he had asked his family not to travel in airplanes and subways because of the swine flu scare, US Vice President Joe Biden rode a train Friday from Washington to Delaware.


Washington, May 2 : A day after announcing that he had asked his family not to travel in airplanes and subways because of the swine flu scare, US Vice President Joe Biden rode a train Friday from Washington to Delaware.

On Thursday, Biden told NBC's "Today" show he and his family were avoiding travelling in tight quarters for fear of contracting the H1N1 flu virus.

"I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now," Fox News quoted Biden, having said.

His comment had enraged the travel industry, and triggered several revisions from the Obama administration, whose official advice is less severe.

"If he could say that over again, he would say if they're feeling sick, they should stay off of public transit or confined spaces," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.

Biden, on his part, appeared ready for his own do-over by Friday night. A longtime rider of Amtrak, he took a train from Union Station to his Delaware home, his office said.
