There’s still no clear winner in the US election but both candidates have paths to victory that could happen anytime this week. But if Joe Biden does succeed, what kind of president would he make? In this episode of Full Story, we look at his past to learn about what he may do in the future
When Joe Biden entered the US Senate as a 29-year-old, it was the start of a political career he hoped would lead him to the White House. Now at the 2020 elections, he stands on the cusp of his dream. With two failed bids behind him, this year as the Democratic nominee he has worked on the basis of one principle above all else: to rid America of the leadership of Donald Trump.
New Yorker journalist Evan Osnos, the author of a new Biden biography, tells Anushka Asthana that for a Democrat who has been in the centre of the party for decades, including as Barack Obama’s vice-president, he is now running on one of the most radical platforms his party has ever stood on.
