No Beau

It appears that there  we will not  have another Biden in the U S Senate. At  the least, the Senate will be sans Biden  for a while.  The vice-president’s son has announced that he is going to stay as Delaware’s Attorney General . Not sure  why he made the announcement now since ole Joe was actually re-elected last November. That in itself is  a very strange concept for me. Biden was on the presidential ballot as the Democrat’s choice for  vice-president while simultaneously running for re-election. That was a classic hedge  your bets was it not?

Anyway, the election will be for the last 4 years of the term and with the younger Biden stepping aside, prospects  improve a lot  for Republican Representative Michael  Castle who has been in Congress for 17 years.

I’ve been thinking about this and I have a thought that might help the Democrats. The vice-president already has some Senate related duties. Just let him have the seat. He did win it in November, 2008. When he is noy doing veep stuff he could do senator stuff. Just a thought.
