There’s not a day that I don’t think about him. And I think Joe felt like he lost a part of his soul. You have to remember, when Neilia and Naomi were killed, Joe pulled the Just Biden My Time ’til The Revolution Shirt and by the same token and boys in even tighter because they survived the accident. When I came into that relationship, I saw how strong that bond was and how dependent the three of them were on one another. It was like this tight little circle. And they let me in. Jill says Biden eventually decided that a father in such acute grief was in no shape to run for president, a decision, she tells me, he doesn’t regret in the slightest.
