    Vice President Joe Biden's son, Beau Biden, died Saturday after a battle with brain cancer, the vice president said in a statement.

    "The entire Biden family is saddened beyond words. We know that Beau's spirit will live on in all of us-especially through his brave wife, Hallie, and two remarkable children, Natalie and Hunter," Joe Biden said in a statement Saturday.

    Beau Biden, 46, was hospitalized earlier this month at Walter Reed Medical Center. He died Saturday evening surrounded by his family, the vice president's office said.

    My condolences to the Bidens. Cancer doesn't have a political allegiance.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This is horrendously sad. It's astonishing what a sad life Joe Biden has had.

    "Biden's unit was activated to deploy to Iraq on October 3, 2008, and sent to Fort Bliss, Texas, for pre-deployment training,[11] the day after his father participated in the 2008 presidential campaign's only vice presidential debate. His father was on the record as saying, "I don't want him going. But I tell you what, I don't want my grandson or my granddaughters going back in 15 years, and so how we leave makes a big difference."[12]

    Biden traveled to Washington, D.C., from Iraq in January 2009 for the presidential inauguration and his father's swearing-in as Vice President,[13] then returned to Iraq.[14] Biden received a visit at Camp Victory from his father on July 4, 2009.[15] Biden returned from Iraq in September 2009, his yearlong stint on active duty complete.[16] Biden had announced that during his deployment he would continue to actively serve as Delaware's Attorney General by working in conjunction with his office's senior staff in Delaware,[17] although a member of his unit related Biden saying he had turned over most of his attorney general work to his deputy so as to focus on his duties in Iraq.[18]"

    Joe has had his share of family misfortune.
    I wish him and his family well during this obviously painful time.

    Besides the tragedy of the (relatively) young man's death itself, Mr. Biden has suffered a great deal of heartwrenching personal loss over the years, only now to lose another child - a parent's worse nightmare.

    We just aren't adequately programmed to accept our children's death before ours ...
