The New Yorker's Evan Osnos has been working on a profile about Vice President Biden for months, and it finally published this week -- with a big focus on the vice president's role in the Ukraine crisis. Osnos conducted many interviews with Biden -- and even talked to President Obama.

probably the one candidate Hillary can beat in the 2016 D primaries.
The man is assassination insurance
Brilliant move by Zero to pick him, precisely for that reason.
Here’s a question.
If Barack somehow died, would Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama allow Biden to be President?
Did you mean 'with' instead of 'and' ?
Biden is interesting, if you enjoy watching a severely mentally challenged person struggle with thought and speech. He, along with Pelosi, Reid and a few handfuls of other Democrat Congressmen, cover the Affirmative Action requirements for employing idiots.
It’s amazing to me how many frustrated English teachers there are here.
I’m not an English teacher.
That should be obvious in that my communication to you apparently wasn’t clear.
I was trying to imply that they were able to write ‘this’ ‘jabberwocky’ while DRINKING MOONSHINE.
Anyone who thinks Joe Biden is “interesting” definitely needs to get out more.
