  •  Yes...just watched a few on Youtube (7+ / 0-)

    Type in the name of  recent senator and "Farewell Speech" then you can see the whole thing.  It's hard to judge the crowd until the last 30 seconds or so, when there is applause (some from staff and the gallery, I assume) but then the Senators will walk up to shake his hand.

    Evan Bay had about 10
    Brian Dorgan 7 or 8
    Joe Biden had about 15
    Chris Dodd looked to have a quoruom...just about every Democrat and some GOP too.

    SO yeah, Joe is a dick.  And his co-workers know it.

    •  Joe Biden didn't really leave the Senate (2+ / 0-)

      He's now President of the Senate.  :)  I bet if he were really leaving public office, he'd have had a crowd like you say Dodd had.

      •  Possibly. (1+ / 0-)

        On the other hand, they might have been more inclined to kiss up to someone that just got a promotion.
