Joe Biden Bio

business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

Joe Biden served six terms as Delware Senator and is one of the longest-serving senators in the state's history. During his time as senator, Biden has served on the Foreign Relations Committee as well as the Senate Judiciary Committee. In August, 2008, Joe Biden announced his position as the vice presidential running mate for the Democratic Party for the 2008 presidential elections.

Joe Biden was born on November 20, 1942 in Scranton, Pennsylvania as Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. Biden's parents moved he and his three siblings to Delaware when Biden was only ten and he spent his childhood in the suburbs of New Castle County. Biden studied hard and was admitted to the Archmere Academy from which he graduated in 1961. Biden immediately set out for higher education and attended the University of Delaware where he majored in history and political science. After graduating from the university in 1965, Biden studied law at Syracuse University and received his Juris Doctor (J.D.) in 1968.

One year later he was admitted to the Delaware Bar to practice law and was soon elected to the County Council in New Castle County. He served there from 1970 to 1972 when he was given the opportunity to run for the U.S. Senate. Although the incumbent Delaware senator, Caleb Boggs, had considered retirement, President Nixon persuaded him to run. Despite political favoritism, Biden managed to win the 1972 election.

Biden met and married Neilia Hunter in 1966 during his time at Syracuse. Together the couple had three children. Shortly after his election to the senate, however, Biden lost his wife and infant daughter in a tragic car accident and his two sons were seriously injured. At the time Biden had not yet been sworn into office and he did so at the bedside of his two injured sons. Both boys eventually made full recoveries and Biden began his routine of riding a commuter train to work every day from Wilminton, Delaware into the offices in Washington, DC.

During his time as U.S. Senator, Biden served on a variety of committees and has chaired the Committee on Foreign Relations. He has served on five different subcommittees under the Committee on the Judiciary and has served as co-chairman on the Caucus on International Narcotics Control.

During his time with the Committee on the Judiciary, Joe Biden helped craft laws that targeted domestic violence and helped improve the National Domestic Hotline. His work with the International Narcotics Control Caucus included reducing the spread of "date rape" drugs and "party" drugs like Ecstacy and Ketamine. Biden's work also involved outlawing certain steroids primarily used by players in the baseball industry. He also promoted college aid and loan programs that allowed parents to take higher deductions for college education expenses.

Biden ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in both 1988 and 2008 and lost both. In August of 2008 Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama announced that Biden would run as his vice president in the upcoming elections in November of 2008. Biden became the 47th Vice President of the United States in 2009.

Joe Biden remarried in 1977 to Jill Tracy Jacobs with whom he has one daughter.

I think it is manmade. I think it's clearly manmade. If you don't understand what the cause is, it's virtually impossible to come up with a solution. We know what the cause is. The cause is manmade. That's the cause. That's why the polar icecap is melting.
