“Nearly forty years after I first got involved, I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe that my chosen profession is a noble calling. That’s why I wanted to be a part of it.”–Joe BidenAs a United States senator from Delaware since 1973, Joe Biden has been an intimate witness to the major events of the past four decades and a relentless actor in trying to shape recent American history. He has seen up close the tragic mistake of the Vietnam War, the Watergate and Iran-contra scandals, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the reunification of Germany, the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, a presidential impeachment, a presidential resignation, and a presidential election decided by the Supreme Court. He’s observed Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and two Bushes wrestling with the presidency; he’s traveled to war zones in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa and seen firsthand the devastation of genocide. He played a vital role by standing up to Ronald Reagan’s effort to seat Judge Robert Bork on the Supreme Court, fighting for legislation that protects women against domestic violence, and galvanizing America’s response (and the world’s) to Slobodan Milosevic’s genocidal march in the Balkans. In Promises to Keep, Biden reveals what these experiences taught him about himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government.With his customary candor, Biden movingly recounts growing up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming a demoralizing stutter; marriage, fatherhood, and the tragic death of his wife Neilia and infant daughter Naomi; remarriage and re-forming a family with his second wife, Jill; success and failure in the Senate and on the campaign trail; two life-threatening aneurysms; his relations with fellow lawmakers on both sides of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees.Through these and other recollections, Biden shows us how the guiding principles he learned early in life–the obligation to work to make people’s lives better, to honor family and faith, to get up and do the right thing no matter how hard you’ve been knocked down, to be honest and straightforward, and, above all, to keep your promises–are the foundations on which he has based his life’s work as husband, father, and public servant. Promises to Keep is the story of a man who faced down personal challenges and tragedy to become one of our most effective leaders. It is also an intimate series of reflections from a public servant who refuses to be cynical about political leadership, and a testament to the promise of the United States.From the Hardcover edition.
Biden Time: Crazy Uncle Joe in His Own Words
We all need a good laugh now and then, especially at the expense of a big-shot politician who opens his or her mouth and removes all doubt about their inherent idiocy, their lovable lunacy, or their daffy demeanor that again and again makes them a late-night-TV punchline. And when it comes to goofy gaffes and dimwitted declarations, nobody does it better than America s most beloved uncle figure, smiling Joe Biden. Biden at his verbally vapid worst is at his all-time best in Biden Time. This collection of the current VP s most memorably moronic or misfired quotes over the last forty-plus years paints a picture of a man notoriously at odds with saying what he means. Since 2008, Biden, as U.S. vice president, has served at the pleasure of President Barack Obama. At times the pleasure has been all ours as we await the next inevitable Biden faux pas. Chock-full of QR codes, Biden Time takes directly to video clips of Uncle Joe spouting his brand of rhetoric reminiscent of the classic gems we've heard before, such as: A man I am proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States Barack America! Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. . . . I m not joking. Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man. Stand up, Chuck, let em see ya. Biden, in a public speech, to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is confined to a wheelchair. If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there s still a 30 percent chance we re going to get it wrong. Biden, speaking to members of the House Democratic caucus. Biden Time not only covers what Biden has said in recent years as vice president, it also goes back several decades, covering scandals throughout his career. Perhaps Biden should take a cue from his boss, President Obama: speak only when there is a teleprompter in front of you. Then again, a totally teleprompted Biden wouldn t brandish the same kind of charm that makes Uncle Joe one of America s most prominent shoot-from-the-hip public personas. Biden Time illustrates how one man can simultaneously be adored by Democrats as just one of the guys, yet delightfully abhorred by Republicans who see Biden as the poster guy for all that is misguided about the Obama administration.
