    He had been fighting cancer for some time. Had served as Delaware attorney general. Very sad indeed.
    Thoughts and prayers for VP Biden and his family.

    Wow!...That is shocking and horrible....No parent ever expects to outlive their child.... It is always a wake up call and reminder that nothing is guaranteed and can all change in the blink of an eye... My condolences to the Biden family.

    How sad. No parent should ever have to bury his or her child.

    Joe and his son Beau had a great relationship and love for each other. That was obvious whenever they were together.

    I pray for the Bidens.

    Sad news indeed. He passed up a run for US Senate in 2010 as he would have faced off against then GOP Senator Mike Castle (friendly with the Bidens) in Delaware in the general election, it was assumed. Of course, as fate would have it, Christine O'Donnell (I'm not a Witch!) upset Castle with Tea Party support in the Sept 2010 GOP primary but lost decisively against the Democrat who did run and is now a Delaware senator, Chris Coons.

    RIP, Beau. I disagreed w/ his politics, but I also noticed the strong bond between him and Joe whenever they were together, and I'm sorry for his loss.

    Didn't Joe Biden's first wife and other child die in a car accident back in the 70s? And now this? Poor guy.....
