Yes, dear reader, my extended family is the very essence of bipartisanism. For that matter, so is my extended network of friends and colleagues.

KETTERING — Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden painted a dire picture of the current state of the country, and placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President George Bush and the Republican who wants to replace him, Sen. John McCain.
Biden, speaking Friday, Oct. 31, at Kettering Fairmont High School's Trent Arena called McCain and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Bush's "economic sidekicks." Biden said there is no doubt that Americans are worse off today than four years ago.
"So the real question," said Biden, "is who is going to make you better off four years from now than you are today? And ladies and gentlemen, that answer is Barack Obama."
Biden drew a crowd of about 1,600 to the arena, which seats 3,600 and can hold 4,500 if people are standing on the floor. The crowd was much smaller than a Monday event at the arena with McCain, which drew an estimated 3,600.
But the smaller crowd didn't quash the enthusiasm of Obama/Biden supporters who attended the event.
