"There's good reason to be excited. You have the first woman running who is qualified, and a very attractive African-American who has demonstrated crossover appeal. I got involved in politics 40 years ago during the civil rights movement, so yes, it's an exciting thing." – Joe Biden

Simple: There's good reason to be excited [about the 2008 election]. You have a woman trying to become president. A popular African-American man, who many different people like, is also trying. I became involved in politics 40 years ago during the civil rights movement. So yes, I am excited.
