Re: “They called him B-biden

Barry, nice article and I appreciate your comments. Barry knows that I asked him the question. I was the person who stood in the hot sun in Springfield over a week ago and first learned of Biden's stutter. Sen. Obama mentioned that he used to be called B-B-Biden and everyone laughed and then got nervous that it was politically incorrect. In fact, we were all too aware that Biden frequently misspeaks, such as when he called the Black junior Senator "articulate" a code word for 'surprise-a smart black person'. The comment from Sen. Obama indicated that this was a real person who had grown up in a biased America and that he could relate. I latched onto him with comfort then and have been comfort able ever since. Meeting Barry helped alot, so I was ready on Wednsday night when the Senator took to the podium. He made me very proud to embrace his past and proclaim the future. Thank you, Barry, for bringing this to light.
