One Last Time...
So President Obama had one last Presidential Medal of Freedom to bestow. It does my heart good to see that it went to Vice President Joe Biden. Aside from inspiring the Onion's single best meme, Biden has a decency and an openness that actually drew people into the Obama coalition. My mother--no Democrat--voted for Obama in '08 because Biden's presence on the ticket convinced her that Obama would surround himself with good people.
Seriously, Biden has been a consequential Vice President, but even more, he has been the uncle America needed through this tough, divisive time.
