The Senate gets to have a say, and so in order to get this done, the President is not going to be able to go out -- nor would it be his instinct anyway -- to pick the most liberal jurist in the nation and put them on the court. There are plenty of judges on high courts already who have had unanimous support of the Republicans.
In the summer of 2007, Iowa State Rep. Lisa Heddens introduced her mentally disabled son to then-Sen. Joe Biden, D-Delaware. ‘Biden didn’t brush him off and was patient with the way he speaks. You know, it is hard to understand him,’ Heddens said of the meeting with her son, Paul, who was then 12 years old. Biden stayed in touch…And that’s the reason Heddens will wait untilBiden makes a decisionon whether he'll run before she makes a decision about who she'll support. State Senator Herman Quirmbach publicly endorsed Biden earlier this week, even though Biden has not yet announced his intention to run.

We expect you to have instantaneous reactions to a crisis without making any mistake or without knowing what’s behind that door or what’s in that guy’s pocket.
Ron Dermer said. While the White House is re-evaluating how to rebuild its relationship with Benjamin Netanyahu, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have met with prominent Jewish leaders and organizations to reassure them they deal will not put Israel at risk. This isn't a grand bargain between the United States and Iran, it's based on hard-hitting, hard-headed compromises and assessments.
We have to ... engage our communities and engage those who might be susceptible to being radicalized because they are marginalized, societies have to provide an affirmative alternative for immigrant communities, a sense of opportunity, a sense of belonging that discredits the terrorist’s appeal to fear, isolation, hatred, resentment.
