Biden on Bush
At the start of his speech, former Vice President Joe Biden paid tribute to former President George H.W. Bush, who died Friday at age 94. As a senator, Biden said he worked with eight presidents in his time, but none had “more class or greater sense of decency” than Bush.
Biden spoke about a trip to Houston after his son’s death. Bush had been out of a stint in a hospital himself for less than a day, but insisted on going to Biden’s hotel room to welcome him to Houston and give him his condolence’s on the loss of his son.
“That’s the kind of man he was, a man of enormous integrity and never, never, never made it about him. It was always about somebody else,” Biden said.
