5. My first encounter with Joe was on Meet the Press
during the 2004 presidential campaign. By that time I was so sick of political talking points from both sides and then I heard Joe speak. My first reaction was WTF, why isn't HE running for president??? He is that rare politician that I connected with instantly. As time passed I found that other family members responded the same way (without any preparation or prompting from me).

I'm glad you found DU, though you missed a lot of excitement amongst the Biden supporters last year. I found DU over four years ago but didn't get involved until Biden starting running for president. It was here that I found kindred souls and the rest is history.

Loved your picture. I'm so glad your wife had a great time. Oh my god, you guys have a photo with Joe! The next VP of the United States! Are you going to frame it?
