Biden -- The Politics of Joy

This snip from the linked-to article just really sums up the essence of Joe, don't you think?

/snip Through receiving lines, pro forma thank-you calls and random glad-handing, he conveys an aura that he would rather be doing nothing else. The video of Mr. Biden swearing in newly elected members and greeting their families in the Old Senate Chamber this month provided 86 minutes of viral eloquence on this.

3. There is something undeniably lovable about Joe!

He's just so real & yes, he always give that impression that there is nothing else in the world he would rather be doing, than what he is doing at the moment.

AND he's not afraid to be himself. Which is very rare in politics these days.

That does not bring me any joy, no matter how happy it may make Joe.

6. Veep Joe Biden is the best.. I'm

so glad to get to know him. The reality of Biden is emerging.. not the corporatemedia's lazy vapid attacks on him.

He's our "Happy Warrior". . http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/11/joe-biden-joins-long-line-happy-warriors/58793/

Thanks gately
