Mr. Biden is an amazing man; and Mr. Obama is all the more amazing for having chosen him for V.P.
I feel it was a PERFECT decision, I believe they complement each other in very important ways.

4. I watched the ceremony on Chris Hayes' show (DVRd since it airs so early here on the Left Coast)
Vice President Biden is such a gracious, caring man. He thanked Justice Sotomayor, apologizing for possibly delaying her train trip to NY (for a book signing), hugged his family, and welcomed his friends, who he greeted on the way out. Then he left to go to the wreath laying ceremony at Arlington with President Obama. For me, we are fortunate indeed to have these two at our country's helm.
Blessings to my fellow DUers.
