Biden Rides the Rails

Stopping off in Washington for a series of television talk-show interviews Tuesday morning, Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden didn't pass up the chance to ride the Amtrak train to Wilmington for an evening campaign event outside of Philadelphia.

Carrying a light brown satchel, Biden arrived on the Union Station platform in Washington, D.C. just before the 2pm departure, stopping to hug a uniformed Amtrak employee before waving another over to say hi, shaking his hand and talking to him like an old friend.

Biden is well-known on the route. On the stump, he talks frequently about his daily ritual of taking the train from his Wilmington home to his Capitol Hill Senate office every morning and back again every night
