    AMES, Iowa - It’s day five of former Vice President Joe Biden’s bus tour around Iowa, and the Democratic presidential candidate has made his way to the heart of the student union at Iowa State University, which has an enrollment of about 33,000 students. For the middle of the day on a Tuesday, it’s a healthy-sized crowd, about 300 people. But for a college campus, something stands out: There is quite a bit of gray hair and bald heads in the crowd. Before Biden was introduced, a speaker asked for every student in the crowd to raise their hand. Less...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — California Sen. Dianne Feinstein has endorsed Joe Biden for president, lining up with a fellow centrist Democrat and onetime Senate colleague and snubbing her home-state counterpart, Sen. Kamala Harris. In a statement Tuesday, Feinstein says she has worked closely with the former vice president and Delaware senator and has “seen firsthand his legislative ability, his statesmanship and most importantly his moral fortitude.”

    Speaking at the White House National Conference on Mental Health on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden told a sometimes serious and sometimes jocular story about the two brain surgeries he needed in 1988 to deal with cranial aneurysms. Biden told the White House audience “they take a saw and they cut your head off” and “they literally had to take the top of my head off.” He also recounted that as he was being wheeled into surgery he asked the neurosurgeon, “What are my chances of getting off this table completely normal?” The surgeon told Biden he had a better...

    Joe Biden is running. The former vice president will make his candidacy official with a video announcement next Wednesday, according to people familiar with the discussions who have been told about them by top aides. Seriously, he’s actually made a decision. It’s taken two years of back-and-forth, it’ll be his third (or, depending on how you count, seventh) try for the White House, and many people thought he wouldn’t do it, but the biggest factor reshaping the 2020 Democratic-primary field is locking into place. He wants this. He really wants this. He’s wanted this since he was first elected to...

    Associated Press ^ | April 5, 2019 | Julie Pace and Thomas Beaumont
    In countless conversations over the past year, former Vice President Joe Biden, his advisers and his broad network of friends and family have openly discussed the vulnerabilities he would face if he ran for president. A voting record that is sometimes at odds with the Democratic Party’s leftward shift. His age. And the affectionate brand of politics that has made him beloved by many Democrats and a target of Republicans for years. What Biden likely didn’t expect was to be confronting those issues so fully before even launching a campaign. On Friday, Biden will make his first public appearance since...

    USApple’s 2018 production forecast, as reported in its annual Production and Utilization Analysis, is as follows: 1) Gala, 2) Red Delicious, 3) Granny Smith, 4) Fuji, and 5) Honeycrisp. Measured in 42 pound units, Gala production is estimated to jump from 49.5 million units in 2017 to 52.4 million in 2018, edging out Red Delicious, whose production is expected to decrease from 57.9 million in 2017 to 51.7 million in 2018. The Gala, which originated in New Zealand in the 1930s, has increased in popularity because consumers like its taste, texture and sweetness; growers like the variety because...

    WILMINGTON, Del. — Former vice president Joe Biden already has a train station in Wilmington named for him. Now, local officials are making a splash by naming a swimming pool for him. Gov. John Carney was scheduled to join Biden and community members on Monday, when the aquatic center at the Brown-Burton Winchester Park will be renamed in his honor. As a teenager, Biden worked as a lifeguard at what was known as the Prices Run swimming pool.

    Anyone who attacks President Trump is doing Obama's, Clinton's, Pelosi's & Schumer's bidding. Attacking President Trump puts you in with those traitors. President Trump is turning this nation around and if you attack him out of some fantasy you have about what he promised or what he meant or what he literally said because it doesn't match up with your jackass fantasy world then you will be treated as those other, aforementioned, traitors are. Your choice.
  • No one is really sure what Joe Biden will be doing at Penn

    Two weeks after the announcement that former Vice President Joe Biden will join Penn as a professor, administrators, professors and politically minded students alike are still confused about the nature of his role at the University. On Feb. 7, Penn President Amy Gutmann announced that Biden will lead the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C. as a "Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor," but nearly a month later the administration seems unclear about what this means. Many students thought Biden would be teaching courses at Penn, ---SNIP--- Although it was first reported that Biden was going...

    April 19, 2016, 10:20 am Biden: I'm not 'Goofy Uncle Joe' By Jordan Fabian Vice President Biden is not a fan of being labeled “Goofy Uncle Joe.” “No, I'm not comfortable with Goofy Uncle Joe,” he said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood. Biden said voters took him seriously when he considered running for president last summer. “And, by the way, the so-called Goofy Uncle Joe — if you notice, I beat every Republican in every poll when they thought I was running,” he said. “You notice that my favorability was higher than anybody that's running for office in...

    Vice President Joe Biden has been mocked on social media after getting up close and personal with the wife of the new defence secretary during his swearing-in ceremony. As Ash Carter began speaking at the White House, Mr Biden beckoned Stephanie Carter from across the room, then put both hands on her shoulders - just as her husband thanked the VP for presiding over the ceremony. Mr Biden's hands lingered for roughly 20 seconds until he leaned in and whispered in her ear. What he was confiding is unclear, but the image was captured on camera and gave Twitter users...

    Washington Post ^ | December 15, 2014 | By Aaron Blake
    Joe Biden is a sitting, two-term vice president of the United States -- a position that often entitles you to frontrunner status in your party's next presidential primary. And Biden has made clear that he's pretty interested in giving it a go. A new poll from Monmouth University, though, should give him some pause. It shows that very same Joe Biden languishing badly in the 2016 primary. In fact, he's at just 2 percent. That leaves him tied with Sen. Bernie Sanders, the socialist independent senator from Vermont. Given that the poll has a 5 percent margin of error, it's...

    Vice President Joe Biden misstated the number of troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan by 47,000 at a Veterans Day event today at Arlington National Cemetary. Here´s audio of his remarks: "Every day for the last six years, I ask my staff early in the morning to contact the Department of Defense to get a detailed report of the number of troops deployed, the number wounded, and the number killed. Not a general number; the exact number every day," said the vice president. "Because for every one of those warriors there´s an entire family, extended family, back in America that...

    DAVENPORT,Iowa(AP) -- Campaigning in one of the nation's key U.S. Senate contests, Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that keeping Democratic control of the chamber would "break the back of the hard right" and ease gridlock in Washington. Biden said next week's choice between Democrat Bruce Braley and Republican Joni Ernst for the open Senate seat in Iowa was critical to the outcome. If Braley wins and the Democrats maintain their majority, he said, the Republicans in Congress will be open to compromising with Democrats on issues such as raising the federal minimum wage."If that happens and it will, what's...
