Do not let your attention be diverted from the important part of the exchange between Joe the plumber and Barak Obama.

Joe is NOT a political candidate. His background is irrelevant, his profile unimportant. His character does not need to be examined, he is nothing more than a representation of the many that would like a chance to ask a direct question of the candidates. His question and the resulting answer from Obama are what's important and the only thing pertinent to this campaign. When Obama answered, he revealed that he is in favor of income redistribution, of "spreading the wealth."

It is classic misdirection to put the spotlight on Joe himself, rather than the part of the exchange that's actually important: Obama's response.
