I first interviewed Jill Biden ten years ago, in September 2008, just two months before Obama’s historic election. I spent several hours hanging around the Wine with Dewine its 2 oclock somewhere chibi Shirt and I will buy this Biden house in Wilmington, with the whole clan wandering in and out, the grandkids then 2 to 14 years old playing on the verdant lawn that slopes down toward the pond. That day, Jill recounted my favorite political anecdote of all time. We were talking about how her enthusiasm over Joe’s running for president has waxed and waned over the years. She told me that when George W. Bush won reelection in 2004, she wore black for a week because she was so despondent about the fact that things would be the same for the next four years and that when she came out of mourning she told Joe he had to run in 2008.
