57. I know Biden's work over the years and I respect him or I wouldn't be thinking about
voting for him. I have a family member who has worked with his political consulting team and he thinks Biden is wonderful and has LONG supported him for a shot at the presidency, way before anybody was thinking about it. So right here in my family there is strong support for his candidacy. But there are also Obama supporters and Clinton supporters (including my 9 year old granddaughter who is a strong feminist and boy, would she give you an argument!).

In all fairness, however, I must point out that to compare Edwards' one Senate term (and that with a Republican controlled Senate) with Biden's long tenure spanning years with the Democrats in control of the Senate is a bit, well, unfair. What I will say however, is that Biden's long tenure of service is a plus in my estimation -- he has stuck with it through thick and thin. VAWA is a good example.

At any rate, I wonder how this will play out after Thursday. Any bets (or surmises)?

Happy New Year! :hi:
