Hey JOE!

 

DREAM TEAM. Democratic senators Barack Obama of Illinois and Joe Biden of Delaware are expected to become the next President and Vice President, respectively, of the United States of America.

 

Meet JOE BIDEN …

 
JOSEPH Robinette Biden Jr. has been serving as a long-time member and current chair of the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee and has worked on resolutions concerning the Yugoslav and Iraq wars.  Biden also served as chair of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, dealing with issues related to drug policy, crime prevention, and civil liberties.
 
Ten years after being born in Scranton, Pennsylvania on November 20, 1942, Biden and his family moved to Delaware, particularly in the town of Claymont, and later grew up in the suburban New Castle County.
 
Biden, a Catholic, has been involved in crafting many federal crime laws over the last decade in America, including the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, also known as the Biden Crime Law.
 
He also authored the landmark Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA), which contains a broad array of measures to combat domestic violence and provides billions of dollars in federal funds to address gender-based crimes.
 
As chair of the International Narcotics Control Caucus, he wrote the laws that created the U.S. “Drug Czar,” who oversees and coordinates national drug control policy.
 
After introducing the controversial Reducing American’s Vulnerability to Ecstasy Act (RAVE) Act in April 2003, Biden has continued working to stop the spread of “date rape drugs” such as Rohypnol, plus drugs such as Ecstasy and Ketamine.
 
The senator from Delaware also worked to pass a bill in 2004 outlawing steroids like Androstenedione, the drug used by many baseball players.
