Vice-Presidential nominee Joe Biden will speak at the national Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Washington DC on October 4th. “Senator Biden’s record in the United States Senate is one of support and understanding that has been unwavering throughout his career.” HRC President Joe Solmonese said after Biden’s VP selection.
I’ve always loved Joe Biden. He was only 29 years old when he won his Senate seat. He took the train home from DC every night to raise his kids. He’s the real thing. What It Takes, by Richard Ben Cramer, is a fantastic behind the scenes look at the ’88 Primary Campaigns and Biden is a major character. It really gives you an idea just how ordinary (and extraordinary) of a guy he truly is. Below the fold is Biden on the stump yesterday, doing what he does best in Ohio.
