    If one is to look at experience, intelligence and policy, it is tough to find a better candidate than Biden. Additionally he is tough as nails–just what the democrats need to fight the republicans. Hang in there Joe.

    Biden was also the first to mention Pakistan as a trouble spot....

    Hm...I think he got that one right.

    Joe, pack it up and go home.
    You are a waste of money!

    I wish that Joe could win, but the source says that Hillary has the most chance. So we should vote for Hillary if we want to keep the Republicans out and hopefully Joe will become the vp to back her up when the going gets tough.

    Thank God for the early contests of Iowa and New Hampshire where the voters understand their responsibility to look at all of the candidates, not just the ones with the money and celebrity.

    Joe Biden is just the person we need right now - I'm glad we still have a process where there are people paying close attention.

    Biden is a treasonous drug war supporter, like Dianne Feinstein, and in many of the same committees with her. He would make a truly terrible president.

    Just because a few people in other countries call him, does NOT mean he represents any of the actual interests of the American people. Candy, how about comparing his foreign experience and goals with Richardson, a guy who really SHOULD be getting more attention from you as the only Hispanic in the race.

    Biden is such a total east coast has-been. Please, can't we move on?

    You really need to rethink even going to the ballot box with that mentality. I wish this guy would win because he's the best candidate, but "the source" says Hillary is great. Let's vote for her! You go girl!
    If he better represents your point of view, vote for him. He won't have a chance if you blindly follow "the source." Does "the source" have a name or an identity?

    Get real and please vote your conscience.

    Have a good day!

    Huckabee, heres a guy that should get it but won't. On top of that I was highly offended by the 911 comment Bidden made at the debate.

    If ever there was a candidate I wanted to vote for, he is the one. He just never says what I want here. Maybe if he went to Tibet, climbed a mountain, change his tune, tone down the semantics, and became America's man, we might all become winners again.

    Please keep covering Biden. The guy is intelligent, tough, experienced, and is exactly what we need. I hope democrats realize they do not have to choose between hilary and obama.

    This guy is a clown who failed out in college for cheating. He has zero credibility.

    Go home Joe and stop plagarizing speeches and law papers.

    Lauren of CA obviously needs to do some homework before posting erroneous statements. Joe Biden has more foreign experience than all of the other candidates (COMBINED)! It's hard to believe that the masses in this Country do not have enough intelligence to make such simple judgements.

    Senator Biden is just what this country needs right now. His foreign policy experience is monumentally important in this precarious time in world history.

    In the last debate, Senator Biden brought up the potential problem in Pakistan while everyone else was trying to come up with the best sound bite that would help them to sound tough on Iran. He sees the big picture and is best qualified to lead the United States in this time.

    If people truly take a look at the candidates–not their poll numbers, not how much money they have–but truly look at their positions, their experience, and their ability to bring people together and to lead, Joe Biden will win the Democratic nomination.

    If that is truly how you decide to vote I think you may want to stay away from the primaries. That is horrible. Voting for a person you don't necessarily like because "people say" that the repubs cant beat her. Vote on issues the rest will work itself out. I am saddened by the idea that the best candidate to lead America in a person view will be delegated to second status, no matter who they are, to a candidate who has higher polling numbers. So sad!

    Hey, Joe, keep up the good work..maybe you can bring in everyone's favorite "non-running" VP candidate from Nebraska and take some common sense to the white house!

    Don't be one of those people that says "I'd vote for Joe Biden, if he could win." If you vote for him, he will win!

    I think Joe Biden is a farst and a flake. He always get in the way of Democrats, then flake out for the Republicians. I think he's a die-hard Republician from that crummy bigoted stat of Delaware. Every time he runs he coward down when the heat is on him. He says something stupid and bow out of the race. I think he runs to raise money he can keep. Sounds like a thief and a covert bigot to me.
