UPDATE: Longtime Attytood reader SM, an expert on Delaware politics, weighs in with something of a defense of Biden Jr.:
But here's my two-cents worth:
It makes no sense for Biden to make his first run for a major office and in all probability lose. Mike Castle will be a one-term senator because of his age and health and Biden will be young enough to run in 2016. Furthermore, and this is lost on non-Delawareans, his comments regarding that major child molestation case ring true. This is a huge case in a tiny state.
