Here’s Joe Biden addressing families brought together by the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, a non-profit that helps families and friends of deceased military men and women. It’s twenty minutes off the cuff about his experience with death and grief, and it’s riveting.
I have to say that I’ve changed my mind pretty completely on Biden. When Obama picked him, I wondered what the hell he was thinking putting a bloviator and serial gaffe monster like this guy on the ticket. But he’s been a pretty good VP, and he’s a more genuine human being than the average politician, despite his appearance.
