Meet Joe Biden

To complement GOOD's on-the-ground coverage at the both national conventions, here's a little background on Obama's VP pick. Vanity Fair's Todd S. Purdum and Dee Dee Myers compiled a quick list of "Ten Things You Need To Know About Joe Biden" if you don't know already.

That ten does not count his winning smile or the friendly asymmetry of his eyes. But it definitely does include a little background on his modest upbringing, his extensive senate experience, his brain aneurysms, and his few-hundred-thousand-dollar personal debt. No handful of multi-million dollar homes to see here, folks.
