Letters to the Editor
ISSUE | SPECIAL ELECTION Democrats rebuffed What a great win for Martina White in the state House race in Northeast Philadelphia. And what a message about the legacy left by now-Congressman Brendan Boyle and a wake-up call for those voting Democratic. Finally, some union members are realizing that Democrats don't have their interests at heart unless they're donating plenty of money.
JOE BIDEN still wants to run for president. At least, his friends tell me, a big part of him does. He talks about the prospect readily, whenever reporters or voters ask. He doesn't sound as if the ambition that fired him to run when he was 44 or 64 has diminished at 72.
