Vice President Joe Biden, and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, were at Camp Pendleton on Friday, talking to children who have lost a family member in Iraq or Afghanistan. The 40-plus children were attending a camp out event at Palomar Mountain sponsored by the USO/Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). The children and their adult chaperones were brought to the base for a display of Marine gear and then an informal talk with the vice president - followed by ice cream.

Vice President Joe Biden often joked on the campaign trail about his wife's lofty educational achievements. She had two master's degrees and had already worked for nearly a quarter-century as a college community instructor. But he had a better idea. "Why don't you go out and get a doctorate and make us some real money?" he said he told her. (That was always good for a laugh, especially in university towns.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Bagpipes wailed, law enforcement badges were striped in black, and a squadron of state police helicopters flew by as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and hundreds of officers from around the country paid their respects Wednesday to Sean Collier, one of their own. At an outdoor memorial service for the 27-year-old campus police officer, Vice President Joe Biden called the brothers accused of killing Collier and detonating the...

Jill Biden was teaching in a locked psychiatric unit at the Rockford Center in Delaware when one of her teenage students started spiraling out of control. He was on his feet, aggressive and abusive. In back of the class, a burly aide sprang up, ready to intervene. Biden shot him a look that said, "Wait." In just a few moments, the situation was defused without disruption or force. "She was able to talk that kid back into the appropriate behavior, and she did it by conveying that she understood how he was feeling," said Dana Garrett, the aide, who vividly remembers the incident two decades ago. "She didn't have an air of status about her. Someone else had to tell me she was the wife of the senator."

There's a meta moment coming in Monday night's episode of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" where 19-year-old Bristol Palin talks about being the mother of a toddler. The brief guest appearance came naturally — the acting part, well, that's another matter — because it mirrors her own life. "It was right up my alley," said Palin, daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. "I was pregnant the same time as the character, Amy, on the show, so I kind of felt like we went through the experience together."

The fight between Julie Taymor and the producers of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" is getting uglier. On Tuesday, producers said they have filed a countersuit in federal court against the director, accusing her of failing to fulfill her contractual obligations on the Broadway musical. The producers said in a release that Taymor refused on a number of occasions to collaborate on changes to the show with other members of the production team. "The show is a success despite Taymor, not because of her," said the claim.

First Lady Michelle Obama will watch her husband's State of the Union speech surrounded by some familiar names. On the list released Tuesday by the White House was astronaut Mark Kelly, the husband of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Laurene Powell Jobs, wife of Apple founder Steve Jobs, and Warren Buffett's secretary. If Debbie Bosanek's name is not well known, her tax bracket is. The assistant to the billionaire founder of Berkshire Hathaway, became a minor political figure after her boss declared that he shouldn't be paying a smaller slice of his income in taxes than middle-class workers like his secretary.

Vice President Joe Biden was sworn in for a second term early this morning in a low-key ceremony at his official residence in Washington. Since inauguration day fell on a Sunday, Biden and President Obama chose to follow tradition and be sworn in privately today. They will reenact their oaths at Monday's public inaugural ceremony at the Capitol. Biden chose to be sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and agreed to an early morning ceremony to allow Sotomayor to attend a book signing for her new memoir this afternoon in New York.

WASHINGTON-- Paying tribute to dead soldiers and their families, President Obama said Monday that the nation had reached a "milestone” of relative peace, noting the end of the Iraq war and plans to end America's role in the Afghan war. “After a decade under a dark cloud of war we can see the light of a new day on the horizon,” Obama told a crowd of military families gathered at Arlington National Cemetery to commemorate Memorial Day. ...

WASHINGTON -- Speaking to the families of dead soldiers, Vice President Joe Biden on Friday delivered an emotional retelling of his own family tragedy, the death of his wife and daughter in a car crash 40 years ago, saying the experience helped him understand why people commit suicide. Biden said the shock and pain of the deaths in 1972, shortly after he was first elected to the Senate, was a “black hole you feel in your chest, like you're being sucked back into it.” “It was the first time in my career, my life, I realized someone could go out - and I probably shouldn't say this with the press here, but - no, but it's more important.
