In the news this morning, at a send-off for Vice President Joe Biden yesterday, President Obama surprised the long-time politician from Deleware with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a civilian.  President Obama remarked that Biden has been "the best vice president America's ever had" and described him as a "lion of American history."  The only others to receive the award have been President Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and General Colin Powell.
