senator biden is now my homeboy

some of the best reporting from the campaign trail. 5th grade reporter damon weaver interviews then senator joe biden during the 2008 presidential campaign.

at one point, weaver asks biden "what a does a vice president do?" biden's answer is fairly clear and succinct. i seem to remember another vice presidential candidate being asked the same question, and giving a very different answer ("i'll tell you, i still can't answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the vp does every day?" – sarah palin.)

since this report, and prior to finishing elementary school, weaver has received a full scholarship to albany state university:
i'm really happy. i didn't know how i was going to be able to afford college, and now this is a big relief to my mother and my family."


  1. I hadn't seen that before! Absolutely adorable. :)

  2. Okay, so I just spent like 20 minutes watching Damon Weaver videos on YouTube. Check out the one of him interviewing Samuel L. Jackson!
