Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, has died.

Complications stemming from brain cancer, which is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. And forty-six is far too young.  My sympathies and good wishes to his family and loved ones.


Beau Biden Opens His Mouth, helps seal DOOM for North Carolina.

Dear God, it’s genetic:

[Son of VP Biden and former DE AG Beau] Biden mentioned that Romney didn’t seek a second term as Massachusetts governor, suggesting his failed economic policies hurt him. “I’ve never met a successful politician who didn’t run again,” said Biden, the Delaware attorney general.

The crowd collectively groaned.

And it wasn’t a happy groan, either. Here are three reasons why this was a [Insert Male Name] Biden Opens His Mouth: (more…)


Breaking: thank you for DE-SEN, Democrats.

(Via AoSHQ) Beau Biden looked at the calendar, looked at the actuarial tables, and decided to wait until 2014.

Delaware attorney general Beau Biden announced Monday that he will not seek election to the U.S. Senate seat once held by his father, Vice President Joe Biden.

The younger Biden told supporters in an e-mail that he will run for re-election as attorney general rather than seek the Senate seat his father held for 36 years.

Biden’s decision comes on the heels of a GOP upset in Massachusetts last week that ended the Democrats’ filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. It leaves veteran Republican congressman and former two-term governor Mike Castle, one of the most successful politicians in Delaware history, still waiting for a Democratic opponent.

I’m translating, mind you. Also, I’m not really surprised.

Is AG Beau Biden (D) afraid to run for DE-Senate?

Now watch: he’ll announce today, just to spite me.

Or simply… thoughtful?

[Former President Bill] Clinton delivered the keynote address at the party’s Jefferson Jackson Dinner, the kickoff to the 2010 campaign in Delaware — a foray many Democrats hope will again feature “Biden for Senate” buttons.

But there was no word from Attorney General Biden on Tuesday night about whether he will run for the U.S. Senate seat once held by his father.

Mark my words, an announcement was expected last night; the Jefferson-Jackson dinner would have been the logical time and place for it, too. On the other hand, VP Biden’s name does not have the luster… well, it never particularly had any real luster, but he doesn’t poll well these days. And on the gripping hand, as one of Jim Geraghty’s readers notes 2014 may be a more logical time for AG Biden to run for Senate anyway.  Meanwhile, of course, Rep. Mike Castle (R-DE) is running for Senate himself.  For those keeping score: no on stimulus, yes on cap-and-trade – but yes on Stupak/no on health care.

Possibly lately he’s been… thoughtful… too.
