Joe Biden is the Senior Senator from Delaware and he has served for the last 35 years. He is presently in his sixth term in the US Senate, Biden is the sixth longest serving among current senators (fourth among Democrats) and is Delaware’s longest-serving senator.

His strengths as summarized by CNN:

” Biden brings to the table an ability to speak knowledgeably about issues ranging from foreign policy to to the country’s domestic agenda.

The Delaware senator has held two of the most important jobs in Washington: chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. That could be reassuring to voters who worry about Obama’s inexperience in national and world affairs.

Biden also has been an early and vociferous critic of President Bush’s foreign policies, most notably regarding the war in Iraq.

He voted for the authorization to invade Iraq but conceded that it was a mistake.”
