Why Joe Biden Should Have Been A Pop Star: The 2012 Election In Song

Monday, November 05, 2012

Joe Biden is a "rock star" -- according to The Gregory Brothers, at least. The Brooklyn group best known for turning viral internet videos into catchy hits pledged to "songify" each of the debates leading up to this year's election -- and they delivered on that promise. We talk with them about their pitch-correcting technique, and why they prefer Joe Biden's voice over any other.

Friday, October 12, 2012

Having watched Vice President Joe Biden debate Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan last night (you can hear Andy Borowitz's take on the night here), we thought we'd post the audio from Leonard's 2007 conversation with then-Senator Joe Biden.

International Relations: Biden, Gates and Clinton Abroad

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

There’ll be a lot more "out of office" emails in Washington this week as key members of the Obama administration are on trips in South Asia, Asia and the Arabian peninsula.

Vice President Joe Biden has just left Afghanistan and is in Pakistan today; and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Qatar, continuing her tour of Arab states after her surprise trip to Yemen yesterday.

Biden and Heinz

WNYC

A reader emails to say Beau Biden will be raising money at Chris Heinz home tonight at 6 p.m.

Biden, the son of the Vice President, is the current attorney general of Maryland Delaware and once thought to be a possible candidate for his father's old Senate seat. Heinz is part of the ketchup dynasty and John Kerry world of family operatives.

Anybody who can snap a picture from inside the event--or at least tell me what they ate--would be appreciated.

Joe Biden and the Post-Cheney Vice Presidency

Friday, November 27, 2009

Over the last two years, Vice President Joe Biden has gone from powerful senator to presidential contender to vice president.  As part of that ascension, he has given up some things to gain others, and as James Traub reports in this weekend's New York Times magazine, Biden is creating a job that holds considerable power in the nation's domestic and foreign agendas.

Biden in Beirut: America's Stake in the Lebanese Election

Friday, May 22, 2009

Vice President Joe Biden travels to Lebanon today to meet with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman in Beirut. The meeting is a show of U.S. support for a leader facing tough elections in two weeks. Lebanon's militant Shiite group Hezbollah is expected to make electoral gains. This is the second visit to Lebanon by an American official. (Secretary of State Clinton was there a few weeks ago.) Why is Washington so concerned about this Lebanese vote? The Takeaway turns to Rami Khouri, Director of the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut.
