    Former Democratic U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Sunday in one of his first major speeches since leaving office this year that he would have liked to have been the U.S. president who ended cancer as we know it. Biden, whose son Beau died from brain cancer in 2015, delivered an emotional speech at the South by Southwest technology summit in Austin, Texas, about continuing the work he led under former Democratic President Barack Obama in the so-called “Cancer Moonshot,” an initiative aimed at speeding up research into new cancer therapies. He spoke of the need for prevention, research...

    Joe Biden's daughter-in-law, Kathleen, has filed for divorce ... but long after she told her husband to leave the family home. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Kathleen claims she and Hunter Biden formally separated in October 2015, and they've been living separately ever since. She says in legal docs she asked him to leave July 5, 2015, "due to his conduct the night before." The docs go on to say they had a prior agreement, if he engaged in the conduct in question he would leave. The documents do not describe the conduct, although she says Hunter's "recent conduct...

    No, not that personal tragedy. His other personal tragedy. Despite 35 years in the Senate and seven more as VP, this is the very first thing his biggest fans want low-information voters to know about him. I wonder if Biden quietly signed off on this just like he quietly leaked that “do it for Beau” anecdote to Maureen Dowd.But … it’s a good ad, no? However crass you may find this “He’s suffered enough so let’s make him president” campaign pitch, it’s a superb contrast with the RoboClinton.

    When famous people die these days, there is an irritating modern tendency towards hyperbole. Everyone even remotely well known who passes away is instantly, breathlessly propelled via social media into the once rarefied stratosphere of ‘great’ or ‘finest’. Insincere platitudes of alarming extravagance rain down on the heads of often thoroughly undeserving individuals. Sometimes, though, it is deserved. ‘Beau Biden was quite simply the finest man any of us has ever known,’ said Vice President Joe Biden about his son, who has died from brain cancer aged 46. I knew Beau well, interviewing him numerous times when I worked for...

    Beau Biden has defended the judge who decided to let an heir to the du Pont family agree to a plea deal after being charged with sexually abusing his young daughter. Biden, the Vice President's son who is in his second term as Delaware Attorney General, wrote a letter supporting Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden and her decision to allow Robert H. Richards IV to admit to fourth degree rape and register as a sex offender but not serve any time. Her decision prompted outrage after she supported the move by writing that the heir, who just turned 48 yesterday,...

    Delaware lawmakers introduced a bill Thursday that would legalize same-sex marriage in the state, with plans to have it signed into law by the end of June. The legislation, which the governor has pledged to sign if passed by lawmakers, was filed a little more than a year after Delaware first began recognizing same-sex civil unions. Critics of the civil union legislation warned at the time that it was simply a precursor to same-sex marriage in Delaware, which could soon join nine other states that have legalized gay marriage. Gov. Jack Markell and Attorney General Beau Biden, both Democrats, joined...

    Granted, being a state prosecutor is a tough job, and when a judge turns down your request to seek evidence at a suspect's workplace, that hinders a potential criminal case a great deal. But I'm starting to think we have another reason why Beau Biden didn't seek that Senate seat in Delaware: In December 2008, an investigation into alleged sex crimes by Lewes pediatrician Earl B. Bradley was blocked when a Sussex County Superior Court judge rejected the state's attempt to raid the doctor's office. Dealt a setback, Delaware authorities never took further steps that could have stopped the suspected...

    Republican hopes of major gains in November's mid-term congressional elections have been boosted by a new report that identified 58 Democratic-held seats in the House of Representatives as vulnerable. A new assessment by the non-partisan Rothenberg Political Report has moved a dozen more Democratic seats in the House into the vulnerable column. Now, 58 Democratic-held seats are "in play" compared to just 14 Republican-held seats. And in the latest blow to President Barack Obama's Democrats, Beau Biden, attorney general of Delaware, abandoned plans to run for the Senate seat that his father Vice-President Joe Biden occupied for 36 years until...

"My first responsibilities are here in Delaware," he said. "Therefore I cannot and will not run for the United States Senate in 2010."

    Democrats have been waiting anxiously to see whether the vice-president’s son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, would run against Rep. Mike Castle for the state’s open Senate seat – something that once seemed like a foregone conclusion. Without Beau in the race, Republicans hold a clear advantage in taking over Joe Biden’s old Senate seat. Now the vice-president is expressing serious doubt that his son will pursue a Senate campaign, in an interview with the Wilmington News-Journal: Biden: "If you run into Beau, talk him into running; he respects you." Q: "I don't think he wants to run, though." Biden:...

    Demure Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution, but since then has not made many waves. It might, however, be part of a political wave a year from now, thanks to a direct descendent of Benjamin Franklin. The great man's great-great-great-great-great grandson, Mike Castle, 70, a nine-term Delaware congressman, will be next year's Republican nominee for the Senate seat Joe Biden held for 36 years. This and other candidate-recruitment successes make it reasonable for Republicans to hope that in January 2011 the Senate will contain fewer than 60 Democrats. Biden's seat is currently occupied by a former Biden...

    With President-elect Obama having resigned his Senate seat yesterday, folks may be wondering about what Vice President-elect Biden might do. Biden told a local TV station right before Election Day he didn't want to resign his seat right away, leading to speculation about whether he is trying to deny the outgoing governor of Delaware -- Democrat Ruth Ann Minner -- the chance to appoint his successor. Under that scenario, Biden would wait until moments before he is sworn in as vice president to resign his seat, which could enable the new governor, Jack Markell, to make the appointment. Biden has...

    Perhaps the MSM will scrutinize the rise of Beau Biden, son of Joe Biden, to a career position as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Philadelphia U.S. Attorney's office. As I understand the facts, Biden, a graduate of Syracuse University law school, began his DOJ career in 1995 in the Office of Policy Development. Two years later, he obtained the far more prestigious and high profile position of Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) in the Philadelphia office. This is a career position, so politics should not come into play in the selection process. AUSAs litigate cases on behalf of the U.S....

    Joe Biden can beat Sarah Palin by pretending she's a man. And that he's not Joe Biden. You have a problem. In less than a month, you will face off against Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in a vice-presidential debate in St. Louis, and were you anyone but Joe Biden, it would likely be a rout. Last week, Palin proved herself a charming, confident, and gifted reader of speeches. But that doesn't change the fact that two years ago she was the mayor of a town of 6,000, crusading against dirty books at the local library. You are a six-term senator...

    The family of Joe Biden, who will be officially nominated as the vice presidential candidate of the Democratic Party's 'reform Washington' ticket with Barack Obama Thursday night, appears to be enmeshed in the same D.C. money game that Obama denounces. One of the senator's sons -- Hunter, a Washington lobbyist -- and the senator's brother, James --received a $1 million investment in their purchase of a hedge fund company from the senator's largest political donor, an Illinois law firm, SimmonsCooper. The brother and the son subsequently repaid the $1 million to the law firm, which specializes in representing asbestos victims....

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is preparing for deployment to Iraq next year. Captain Beau Biden is part of the 261st Signal Brigade that has been told to prepare for duty in Iraq in 2008. They have not been given a date of deployment yet. Biden -- according to a report on Radio Iowa -- says he doesn't want his son to go to Iraq, but says he doesn't want his grandchildren having to "go back in 15 years." Biden continues to criticize Democratic rivals such as Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama...
