"It was an authentic, moving and powerful moment. It was, in fact, the strongest expression of real paternal love we have seen from a public official in recent memory and maybe ever. By bringing that reality to a national political stage, Biden demonstrated that -- for all of us, not just feminists -- the personal is political, that women alone do not have the sole responsibility for caring about the future of our children and that the concern of fathers is a largely untapped pool of political energy."

-- Leah McElrath Renna on the Huffington Post about Joe Biden tearing up over his first wife and only daughter's tragic deaths and caring for his two sons as a single father.
