Who is Joe Biden


I’m sure most of you have already know that Barack Obama’s Vice president pick is Joe Biden. Hear that? That’s a bunch of Clinton supporters smashing their heads against the wall.Now this is certainly a bold move for Senator Obama but his choice is made and he is scheduled to appear with Senator Biden today in Illinois. Here’s a little information I could gather regarding Senator Joe Biden:


Joe Biden Jr, is the senior Senator for the state of Delaware. He was elected at the minimum age of 30 and has since been Delaware’s longest-serving Senator. Senator Biden is also the chairman for the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations . He ran for President in 1988 and although he was initially a strong candidate soon after he was discovered of plagiarism in a speech. It was later known that in his first year of law school he had plagiarized a class paper. Coming under harsh scrutiny, his popularity soon fell and he withdrew from the nomination race in Sept 23,1987. He ran again for the 2008 democratic nomination, but after the Iowa caucuses in January he dropped out receiving only 1% of the delegates behind the rest of the nominees. In debates he had previously criticized Obama’s lack of experience to lead a country. Senator Biden has voted on issues such as the war in Iraq. Even though after words he would become a strong critic on the way it was carried out.


I hope I helped to inform you in any shape or form on Vice president pick for the Democratic party Senator Joe Biden. I wish I knew how Hillary supporters feel about this choice.

    wouldn’t that be something if john mccain picks someone like sarah palin for vp. they share a lot of the same issues like they’re against same sex marriages and are pro life. but if he really wants to hit obama where it hurts condelezza rice would be an interesting pick too.
