View Diary: This trial lawyer is damn proud of Joe Biden... (8 comments)

  •  Joe was also (6+ / 0-)

    a trial lawyer.  He had a fairly short career before entering politics, but he did practice as a criminal lawyer.   I was aware that he had a law degree, but I didn't know what his practice was.   However, before I saw this diary this morning, I looked it up because my initial reaction from his performance last night was that he was a litigator.  

    I worked as a law librarian for a number of years at a large firm and gravitated toward the litigation group as they were the heaviest libary users.  Biden's performance very much reminded me of the way effective trial lawyers can take over the room and control the narrative.  I have no doubt that Joe would have been a top level trial lawyer had he chose to go that route.  A lot of the best ones I knew started there careers as public defenders, criminal defense lawyers, or JAG officers where they honed their skills.  I am glad Joe is fighting for us.
