?He is uniquely suited to be my partner as we work to put our country back on track.?
?Now I could stand here and recite a list of Senator Biden's achievements, because he is one of the finest public servants of our time.?
?But first I want to talk to you about the character of the man who will be standing next to me.?
?His family didn't have much money.?
?Joe Sr. worked different jobs, from cleaning boilers to selling cars, sometimes moving in with the in-laws or working weekends to make ends meet.?
?But he raised his family with a strong commitment to work and to family; to the Catholic faith and to the belief that in America, you can make it if you try.?
?It might be hard to believe when you hear him talk now, but as a child Joe Biden had a terrible stutter.?
?They called him 'Bu-bu-Biden.'?
?But he picked himself up, worked harder than the other guy, and got elected to the Senate - a young man with a family and a seemingly limitless future.?
?Joe's wife Neilia and their little girl Naomi were killed in a car accident, and their two boys were badly hurt.?
?When Joe was sworn in as a Senator, there was no ceremony in the Capitol - instead, he was standing by his sons in the hospital room where they were recovering.?
?Here's how Joe Biden responded. He never moved to Washington.?
?Instead, night after night, week after week, year after year, he returned home to Wilmington on a lonely Amtrak train when his Senate business was done.?
?He raised his boys - first as a single dad, then alongside his wonderful wife Jill, who works as a teacher. ?
?He had a beautiful daughter.?
?Now his children are grown and Joe is blessed with five grandchildren.?
?He instilled in them such a sense of public service that his son, Beau, who is now Delaware's Attorney General, is getting ready to deploy to Iraq.?
?And he still takes that train back to Wilmington every night.?
?Out of the heartbreak of that unspeakable accident, he did more than become a Senator - he raised a family.?
?That is the measure of the man who is going to be the next Vice President of the United States of America. That is the character of Joe Biden.?
?Now, years later, Senator Biden would face another brush with death when he had a brain aneurysm.?
?On the way to the hospital, they didn't think he was going to make it.?
?They gave him slim odds to recover. But he did. He beat it. And he came back stronger than before.?
?Maybe it's this resilience - this insistence on overcoming adversity - that accounts for Joe Biden's work in the Senate.?
?Time and again, he has made a difference for the people across this country who work long hours and face long odds.?
?This working class kid from Scranton and Washington has always been a friend to the underdog, and all who seek a safer and more prosperous America to live their dreams and raise their families.?
?Year after year, Joe Biden has been at the forefront of the fight for judges who respect the fundamental rights and liberties of the American people; college tuition that is affordable for all; equal pay for women and a rising minimum wage for all; and family leave policies that value work and family.?
?Those are the priorities of a man whose work reflects his life and his values.?
?Joe Biden passed laws to lock down chemical weapons, and led the push to bring Europe's newest democracies into NATO.?
