WASHINGTON -- Vice President Joe Biden will attend a fundraiser for Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's campaign for governor on Tuesday, the White House said late Monday. The small event, with about 25 attendees, will take place at the Powerhouse, a former paper mill in Georgetown. Brown's running mate, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, will also attend.   "I'm humbled to have Vice President Biden's backing and support," Brown said in a statement. "This event continues to build on the momentum we need for victory in November.

To no one's surprise, Vice President Joe Biden said what was on his mind the other day down in Danville, Va. To no one's surprise either, the Mitt Romney campaign pounced on this notoriously free-speaking politician like a feline on catnip. It all started when Mr. Biden, addressing a predominantly African American crowd, quoted Mr. Romney as saying in his first 100 days as president that "he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules -- unchain Wall Street. " Then the vice president added with a grin: "They're going to put y'all back in chains!"

Vice President Joe Biden heaped praise on Gov. Martin O'Malley at a Baltimore fundraiser Monday evening, telling a room of 200 supporters that the governor can be trusted to lead, in part because he "feels" the pain of ordinary Marylanders "in the gut. " Speaking for half an hour at the private event at the Baltimore Hilton Convention Center, Biden highlighted some of the themes O'Malley regularly hits while on the stump: keeping jobs in Maryland and...

WASHINGTON -- First, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Joe Biden, D-Del., had the national headache of presiding over the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Then at 2 a.m. Saturday, he had a root canal.Committee aides said that one of Biden's teeth began hurting while he was presiding over the first day of hearings Friday. The pain in the tooth got so bad that early Saturday morning Biden called a dentist. But a few hours after the root canal, he was back on the job -- though when out of public sight, a friend said, "he was wearing a big ice pack on his mouth."

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware announced his candidacy for president yesterday, arguing that when the media buzz fades from Democratic candidates such as Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois, voters will rally around his foreign policy expertise. Saying that President Bush has "dug us in a very deep hole" in Iraq and at home, Biden, author of the lead Senate resolution disapproving of Bush's troop increase in Iraq, said he is the candidate best prepared to "step in and lead this country.

NEW YORK -- On a scale of zero to 10, with zero being a minor annoyance and 10 being a complete outrage, the kerfuffle over Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr.'s use of "clean" and "articulate" to describe Senate colleague and fellow presidential hopeful Barack Obama ranks about a 2 - although with many black Americans it is a very strong 2. Having followed Mr. Biden for years, I am certain that the Delaware Democrat meant absolutely no harm in his musings about...

I read with interest Jules Witcover's column about the Democrats' presidential prospects ("If not Hillary, how about Joe?" Aug. 4). He concluded that Vice President Joe Biden "is a good alternative presidential candidate for the Democrats" in 2016. Wrong! If history is a guide, the last person the Democrats should nominate if Ms. Clinton doesn't run is a sitting vice-president. While a number of vice-presidents have ascended to the presidency following a president's death, since 1800 only two sitting vice-presidents - Martin Van Buren in 1836 and George H.W. Bush in 1992 - have been elected president.

One of the enduring misperceptions of American politics is that the vice presidency is a steppingstone to the presidency. Of the 47 men who have held the office, only four were elected to the Oval Office as sitting standbys: Adams, Jefferson, Van Buren and, 152 years later, the senior George Bush. And, of these, only Jefferson was given a second term. This bit of history has not discouraged the widespread impression that the individual "a heartbeat away" from the presidency has some kind of leg up on competitors for the office.

In the already tiresome guessing game of whether or not Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016, there's a wide assumption among Democrats that the nomination is hers for the asking. One apparent rationale is that the party has no one else to turn to who has comparable national recognition or appeal. The assumption is somewhat predicated on an expectation that Vice President Joe Biden would step aside, either out of a conviction that he could not beat her in primary competition or that his public image is so tattered as to render his nomination inconceivable.

After touring the expansion of the Panama Canal, Vice President Joe Biden and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Tuesday they plan to increase their advocacy for a proposed CSX transfer station in Baltimore.  "You had [Panama] President [Ricardo] Martinelli saying, 'Look, any port on the East Coast that doesn't dredge to 50-feet deep, and does not expand the size of their dock and intermodel connections, they're going to lose out," Biden said in a telephone interview from Panama with The Baltimore Sun. "Baltimore is more ready than others," Biden said, citing the port's already-deep dredging.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake plans to travel with Vice President Joe Biden to tour the Panama Canal expansion project next week, her office said Friday. The costs of the two-day trip will be covered by the federal government, the city said. Biden and Rawlings-Blake also plan to meet with Panama's president Ricardo Martinelli. Mayors Michael Nutter of Philadelphia and Kasim Reed of Atlanta also will be attending. Rawlings-Blake said it was "an extreme honor to be one of the few cities chosen" to get a close-up view of the work.

The Sun's recent editorial on guns laws ("Resigned to guns," Sept. 25) should have added a picture of Joe Biden and his advice to buy a shotgun from last February. I am sure the victims of the Navy Yard incident would appreciate our vice president's advice. But since it is un-PC to say anything bad about a Democrat, no chance of that happening.

In the previous three seasons, he swept county and regional titles, but there is a hole in that resume he would like to fill. In three trips to the state tournament, his best finish was a third last year.

Vice President Joe Biden will visit the Port of Baltimore today as part of a tour of East Coast ports seeking federal money to accommodate increased freight expected from the Panama Canal in coming years. The White House said last week Biden would add Baltimore to an earlier announced line up of visits to the ports of Savannah, Ga., and Charleston, S.C. Biden is scheduled later this month to visit Panama, where an expansion of the canal is expected to be completed in 2015. Biden's trip was announced days after the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded Baltimore a $10 million grant to build more access to rail, expand storage at Fairfield Marine Terminal, and help widen the channel at Seagirt Marine Terminal.
