In this election cycle there is a chance to make history. The first woman president, the first African American president; the chance to solve poverty, the chance to end a war. What it all comes down to is, ‘What’s the highest  priority?’

If the answer is that ending the war in Iraq with a victory, and bringing the troops home in a way that secures the region, while at the same time restores America’s image in the world, is the most important thing that the next president must do, then the only man or woman qualified for the job is undoubtedly, unquestionably, and undeniably Joe Biden.

Biden who?

Joseph R. Biden, Jr. is the senior senator from Delaware. Elected to office at the age of 29, he is one of the youngest senators ever elected. Over his career, he faced many challenges both political and personal, and he as overcome them all.

When Biden was elected to the US Senate, he faced a popular incumbent republican. Everyone, including Joe Biden, was surprised when he won at the polls.

Immediately following the election, his Senate career was nearly cut short when a tractor-trailer hit a car carrying his two sons, wife and daughter. His wife and daughter were killed, and his boys seriously injured.

After the tragedy, Biden came together with his sister, Valerie Biden Owens, to help take care of his children while he was at work. Then and to this day, the Delaware senator takes the Amtrak home to be with his family each night.

As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in 1987 Biden committed his life and energy to successfully defeating Robert Bork’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

Then, in 1988, Joe was diagnosed with a series of near-fatal brain aneurysms; he was given only a thirty-percent chance to live, and received the Last Rites.  

Today, as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Joe Biden is the most trusted authority on international affairs on both sides of the isle.

I mention all of this to prove a point, that Biden can overcome difficult odds, and is a stronger person for having triumphed in the darkest of days that any one person could be expected to face.

Why Biden

Two words: Leadership and Experience.

Joe Biden has a singular quality that no other candidate running for President possesses: The proven experience to lead by developing bold ideas and multilayered solutions for the increasingly complex and multifaceted problems that America and the world face today.

For instance, Biden’s plan to win the war in Iraq received 75 votes in the Senate. When the Pakistan crisis began to peak, Pervez Musharraf called Biden first, not Bush or Hillary.

On the topic of Iraq, the ‘Biden Plan’ is the only realistic and reasonable solution put forward by anyone from any party. Biden understands that the reality of the situation is that time tables for withdraw are a fairytale. Pulling out the troops before a political solution is in place leaves the region vulnerable to outside influence and increased violence from within.
