Many here know I really have liked Joe Biden. His farewell speech, which I accidentally saw from the start on C-Span, was a classic example of Senate culture and Biden unique skills at best. I thought his speech was reflective of the great Senate speeches of the past. It was oratory but without the tight script used so often today.
As a political junkie I thought I understood the intimate culture of the Senate. I found out watching this speech that I really didn’t know it. I found a short 4 min video yesterday but it didn’t represent the speech as well as I wanted. This a longer version and more representative of Biden’s very classy farewell. This is worth watching right to the end.
