There's always something bigger than you.
My dad is Joe Biden.
We'd always come into Syracuse for the Empire State Games and the stair fair.
The truth is, he almost wasn't a senator at all. In 1972, shortly after his improbable victory, but before he took the oath of office, my father went to Washington to look at his new office space. My mom took us to go buy a Christmas tree. On the way home, we were in an automobile accident. My mom, Neilia, and my sister, Naomi, were killed.
I was a lucky, lucky boy to have the mom I had and the mom I have now.
Look, I'm happy to defend my dad. I don't think he needs any defensiveness.
Be there for my dad, like he was for me.
Families can get torn apart and never recover or they grow even closer.
When crime was spiking in our communities, Dad wrote the crime bill that put 100,000 cops on the streets and led to an eight-year drop in crime across the country.
Any time the other side - Karl Rove or folks on the far right - are going after my father for smiling too much, you know that's a victory.
As adults, we have a legal and moral obligation to stand up and speak out for children who are being abused - they cannot speak for themselves.
If I'm half as good a dad to my two kids as my dad has been to me and my brother and sister, my kids will be lucky.
Be there for Barack Obama, because our country needs him.
We do have promises to keep. And my dad and Barack Obama are keeping them.
Look, would I think my dad would make a great president in 2016 and going forward? Of course.
I know my father will be a great vice president.
When domestic violence was often a dark secret, Dad wrote the Violence Against Women Act, which gave countless women support, protection and a new chance at life.
My mom rebuilt our family. That's why my dad spent so much time talking about my mom, who he's incredibly proud of.
Look, I've got a great dad.
Be there because Barack Obama and Joe Biden will deliver America the change we so desperately need.
My dad is a phenomenal skier.
We are a family of skiers, and great skiers.
