Vice-President Joe Biden is no stranger to family tragedy.  Yet again he is confronted with loss, after the death of his son.  I have always liked Biden, both for his often bewildering spontaneity and for his political flair.  He and President Obama make for a strange duo, impulse versus uncommunicative.

The Vice-President was often right before others dared to see the light.  He kept his own council while remaining loyal to the President and has continued to be appreciated by Democrats and Republicans alike.  No doubt he will have their sympathy at a time when shared feelings have become the exception.

He would make a good president after all.
