Looking to get to know a different side of newly elected Democractic Vice Presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden? Learn more about Biden, who has served as a United States senator since 1973, by listening to a podcast of his visit to the Free Library of Philadelphia. Biden stopped by late last August, shortly after the release of his book, Promises to Keep. During his time at the Free Library, he discussed both personal and political issues, covering everything from his brain aneurysm to his plan for responsible troop withdrawal from Iraq.

Um...are you sure you meant to say "elected"? I mean, optimism is a wonderful trait, but perhaps this particular word was chosen prematurely! I've started re-reading the book (since I know people will ask me questions about him; besides, it's a good read) and whether you agree with him or not, you have to like his openness. He writes very well...and he's made himself respected by his constituents by commuting on public transportation, Amtrak, just like them.

In this case, elected is correct because it's referring to nominee... not actually elected VP :)

It is my opinion that the presidential race this year will have the most interest in the Vice presidential candidates. Their stand on the issues will carry significant importance.USA Elctions

I think Joe Biden is the perfect man for the job, he is going to be Barack's right hand man because his strongest area of expertise is where Barack is weakest. So it was a very smart move on Barack's part to pick Joe! Good Work! About Me

Sen. Joe Biden or should I say VP nominee Biden has managed to stay out of the limelight that has focused on Obama so intently. I am looking forward to hearing Mr. Biden debate. Billings

Thank you for posting this. So much has been made about John McCain's runningmate Ms. Palin, that very little information has been given by the media about Mr. Biden. As an undecided voter, every little bit of information helps, as I would like to know which candidates will help my small business, Air Bed Warehouse grow! Hopefully this book gives me a bit more incite on Mr. Biden.

I certainly have to say that VP Biden was definitely not born with a silver spoon in his mouth...More likely with his foot in his mouth. His comments make me laugh .
