Biden at New School

After the New School’s announcement that Sen. John McCain would be giving next month’s commencement speech caused an angry backlash, Bob Kerrey will tonight play host to a politician (and presidential candidate) more amenable to the left of center school. Delaware’s Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. will speak at the school tonight, though he is expected to steer clear of presidential politics. The topic for discussion, economic issues concerning India and China, is not exactly the stuff that is likely to stir any controversy, or petitions.
