Despite his campaign schedule, Joe Biden is still teaching his law school class.
Despite his campaign schedule, Joe Biden is still teaching his law school class.

WILMINGTON, Delaware (CNN) - Joe Biden may be a vice presidential nominee during the week, but on Saturdays he's still trying to keep his old schedule.

After a week of criss-crossing the country, Biden returned home to Wilmington Friday evening in time to teach his law school class the next morning. Since 1991, the senator has taught "Current Topics in Constitutional Law" to a small seminar of students at Widener School of Law in Wilmington.

This is the only class the Democratic running mate has been able to helm so far this year. The first class was scheduled for the day after Barack Obama tapped Biden for his vp pick.

A spokesman for the university says he expects this to be Biden's last time teaching this semester.
The popular course is capped at 18 students, and there is a waiting list to register.

    I just know McCain will have something smug to say about this. First it was bashing community service. Now he'll probably bash teachers.

    He and Obama are REAL people who truly care about the American people. When I listen to McCain and Palin I want to get sick- we can see right through their lies and deceit. Looking forward to the 1st VP debate. We'll see miss palin squirm then!!!!!

    Maybe Biden knows that when he and NOBAMA lose in November, he'll still need and job. So he's just trying to keep all of his options available.

    It'll be nice to have a VP who honors the Constitution instead of one who rips it to shreds.

    This is supposed to be comments about Biden not Sarah Palin's baby, D. Bradshaw.

    Way to Go Joe! They are very lucky students.

    Biden and Obama had better get very serious, very quickly if they intend to win in November.

    More and more comes out daily regarding Sarah Palin and more will be coming out.

    She did NOT sell her jet on e-bay for a proit. It was actully removed from the site and sold by a brick and mortar company for a LOSS!

    It appears that she and her staffers went trhough the files of the State Commissioner she fired for not firing her brother-in-law.

    It also appears that she may have had an affair, which is why ehr husband dissolved the partnership.

    If the American people are content to just accept this woman on blind faith because McCain says to trust her, then we and this country deserve exactly what we get.
