Biden unsuccessfully sought the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 1988. He again ran in 2008, but withdrew after the caucuses in Iowa on January 3, 2008. Obama announced Biden as his running mate two days before the beginning of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, at which the nominations of Obama and Biden are expected to be ratified.

    Man, I love seeing the comments here from 2008 about not having more poor leadership. Wow, these past 7 years have been rough for everyone including those most hopeful about Biden and Obama. I always thought Obama used Biden as a “useful idiot” to distract from his real plans.
    Biden seems to be totally in love with himself, but I don’t know him. I feel bad for him about his son dying recently, however that does not mean I want this man to be president.

    Also, remember when people were complaining that McCain would be too old to be president? He would have been 72. Biden will be 74 in 2017…#DoubleStandard?

  2. I believe that he has his moments where he speaks out of turn and the situation does not turn out well diplomatically, but I also think that Biden is doing his best in the Middle East, which I appreciate. Albeit, there are absolutely times that I wonder if he has the capacity to know when to keep his mouth shut (e.g. when he cussed in answering a student, when he attempted to make a joke out of one of Theodore Roosevelt’s quotes). Like Bonzer said, he has been active in educating the future of the country, and that is a definite positive to add to his legacy. I don’t think that he deserves only one star.

    I feel like there’s not much to say about Joe Biden except that he is always entertaining. He is always in the background of Obama’s picture looking super happy like they are best friends. Honestly I’m glad nothing has happened to Obama though because I really don’t think Biden would make a good president. I like his honesty though.

    I honestly can’t even stand to look at Joe Biden, much less listen to the man speak. If he has been involved it is not well known. I feel like there were plenty of other people to be Obama’s VP that could’ve done a much, much better job.

    Regardless of how I feel about Joe Biden personally, I am sure he and his family are in a great deal of pain right now, over the loss of his son. Cancer is a scourge, and I hope someday, we have a cure. Prayers for the family.

  6. He is a wall flower. No strong opinions whatsoever. What has he done in the past 7 years but draw a paycheck?

  7. Hé’s been pretty vocal on teen abortions, teen pregnancy and a policy of educating teens. He voted Yes on the use of contraceptives in preventing teen pregnancies. He’s pretty pro-active on various issues. I don’t understand how Hillary would have made a better VP.

    I like what Stacy says about Joe Biden. I’m not sure I agree 100%, but if he really is who he say’s he is, and that is not changing, then at least he will do as he says, and not turn around and do something totally different once he gets elected.

  9. God Bless Joe Biden and his honest answers. I like that he is very tongue and cheek. he tells us what we feel and not what we want to hear. Joe Biden is one of the few politicians that are real. he is never going to chaneg and that makes him a man I respect!

  10. I like Joe Biden, he is feisty and speaks his mind, however, Obama should have picked Hillary , you can tell that there is still ‘bad blood’ between Obama & Hillary, they still hate each other. Hillary is only pretending to support Obama, deep down , her & her very staunch supporters will end up voting for McCain ): LOL.

  12. He has said some dumb things in my not so humble opinion. They better not mess this one up, the country can not possibly take another 4 years of poor leadership. I still cant get over the Gore and Kerry losses. I am definitely a sore loser after those elections. I did not even think i would make it these past eight years. thank goodness they are over. Im surprised george w bush has not managed to blow up the entire earth yet. and people though there would never be worse president than Clinton, ha….

  16. Biden seems like the best candidate for the VP spot, hopefully they will have enough time to get on the same page and rev up the campaign.
