    Vice president's son decides not to run for Senate

    Washington Post

    DOVER, Del. -- Vice President Joe Biden's eldest son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, dealt another body blow to the flailing Democratic Party on Monday, announcing that he will not run for the Senate seat long held by his father.
    The younger Biden said he needs to remain focused as attorney general on a high-profile criminal scandal involving a pediatrician accused of sexually assaulting several patients. Prosecutors believe Dr. Earl Bradley, who was arrested in December, may have molested more than 100 children over the past decade.

    His excuse not to run sounds admirable, but I bet it has to do with the likelihood of Biden losing--especially after watching a Republican become a Massachusetts Senator, and he would have to run against a strong Republican (Mike Castle, a two-term governor and one of the most successful politicians in Delaware history)

    Ignore him. It's easy since there's no substance there anyway.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I think it has to do with the likelihood of his campaign reflecting badly on his father. If you say "Well he defended such and such" in 2010 then you can say "Biden's son defended such and such" in 2012. The right eats up all type of silly connections on what a person's values are regardless of what the circumstances are. It is how Bush won against Dukakis in '88. "Willie Horton" anyone?
