Politics Joe Biden breaks down in tears: 'Beau should be the one running'
LSU's defense has helped mold LSU's offense into the nation's best
While LSU's offense has made headlines all season, the Tigers' growth is due in no small part to defensive coordinator Dave Aranda.For what may be the last time during the 2019 season, an LSU offense that has set and reset school and conference records was rocked on its heels by an opposing defense. Offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger was not amused, and told Aranda as much in colorful, expletive-laden terms.
"Beau should be the one running for president, not me," Biden said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
Beau was the attorney general of Delaware when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He died in 2015 at the age of 46. Joe Biden said his son pushed him to stay politically engaged during his cancer fight.
"He was worried I would walk away" from public service, Biden said on Wednesday morning. "He is part of me, and so is my surviving son Hunter and (daughter) Ashley."
Clemson holds Saturday practice in hotel ballroom due to bad weather
With bad weather outside, Clemson held Saturday's practice for national title game in hotel ballroom. Coach Dabo Swinney said it was productive.While the LSU team worked out in the New Orleans Saints' indoor facility, Swinney chose to have his team practice on Saturday in their hotel's ballroom.
Biden has long said that his very public loss — his wife and infant daughter in a car crash decades ago and later Beau — is a point of connection with voters.
"You'd be amazed at the number of people who come up to me," he said. "I mean hundreds of people over time. They'll throw their arms around me, men and women, and say, 'I just lost my son, I just lost my father, I just lost my wife.' And all they want to know is that you're going to make it."
The former vice president recalled that Beau would be the last person to talk to him before vice presidential debates, grabbing him by the lapel and saying "just be who you are."
"He still grabs me by the lapel every time I walk out," Joe Biden said, wiping tears away from his face.
