Biden wins senate reelect. Now what?


firstread.msnbc.msn.com

"Don't be carried away with this vice president stuff," he said at the party's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner on Oct. 13. "Don't stop at the top of that ticket, walk your way down. You can vote twice for the first time in your life for the same guy and it be legal."

With the projected election of Democrat Jack Markell as Delaware's new governor, Biden is assured the luxury of resigning his seat whenever he wants and ensuring it remains in Democratic hands. In an interview with KY-3 in Missouri last month, Biden explicitly said that, "I wouldn't resign my Senate seat until I were sworn in as Vice President of the United States." The new governor is also sworn in on Jan. 20.

Is this even legal?

What is Biden going to do?

How is he going to run two offices?

Someone else will have to take over for him if he becomes VP tonight. I don't understand how someone can be the VP and a senator at the same time.

Has anyone else done this before?

This is weird. I personally think that congress should hold a hearing about what to do with these situations. I don't think Biden should be VP and the Senate at the same time. I think that's illegal or something.

If I can recall correctly yes this is legal.

Because the vice president hardly does anything, he can choose a second position.

It is legal in some states. The governor of Delaware decides his replacement.

He's being elected as VP but he won't actually be the VP until January. I could be wrong, but isn't that the case? He will just have to retire his Senate seat before he is actually an active VP, presuming he and Obama win of course!
