Biden Bio book review
Joe Biden has been an irrepressible force in American politics for much of the past four decades. He has defended the Obama administration's stimulus agenda, chaired the president's middle-class task force and overseen the troop withdrawal from Iraq in recent months.

Veteran Washington columnist Jules Witcover has published a biography of Biden that amounts to a celebratory recitation of the major private and public moments of the sitting vice president's life. Biden's rich and sometimes controversial career mirrors the policy achievements and political failures of the Democratic Party in modern times, and "Joe Biden" can also be read as a meditation on his Party's troubled and occasionally triumphant trajectory since the 1960s.

1. That looks really interesting
At $27.99, I'll have to wait until it comes out in paperback though.

2. $18.47 on Amazon

I'm going to buy it. If it's half as good as promises to keep then it'll be worth it. What's up with the photo on the cover though. Joe looks good but Obama looks like a wierdo.

3. I hadn't noticed,
but now that I look at it, Biden looks like the president and Obama looks like a young, eager protege.

4. You can get it for $9 now on Amazon.
You're right about the cover. Joe looks hot, but Obama has a weird look on his face. Joe is definitely overshadowing Obama in that pic.
hmmm. interesting.

5. Oh well,
the book IS about Joe, but it sure does look like they are trying to say something. Of course, we are bound to read into such things.
