Biden to headline fundraiser for son

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/06/01/art.biden2.gi.jpg caption="Joe Biden is scheduled to attend a fundraiser for his son Tuesday night."](CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden heads to New York City Tuesday night to help out his son Beau.

While Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden recuperates after suffering a mild stroke early last month, the vice president headlines a fundraiser for his eldest son, who is running for re-election this year.

The elder Biden also headlined a fundraiser for his son last week in Philadelphia.

Before attending the New York City event, the vice president is the main attraction at a fundraiser in Bedford, New York for Rep. John Hall. The two-term Democrat represents New York's 19th Congressional District, which stretches north from New York City's northern suburbs.

    If politicians would spend less time fundraising and more time governing, we would all be better off.

    Stop this madness. Public financing of reasonably limited campaigns will be less expensive for the taxpayers and less corrupting (most donors don't give unless they expect to receive a return on investment from the public coffers!) than the system we have now.

    We have become an aristocracy. The children of rulers become our new rulers.

    Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill, represent real family values, American style.

    Nobody would claim he is perfect, but he seems to be honest.
