Biden's belly flop

Kaus, M.; Clift, E.
September 1987
Newsweek;9/28/1987, Vol. 110 Issue 13, p23
Last week was supposed to be good for Senator Joe Biden's Presidential campaign as he chaired the Bork hearings. Instead, it became unhinged amid charges of plagiarism and glibness. He is the second Democratic candidate this year (Gary Hart was the first) to have his key character flaw located,bombarded, and efficiently exploded by the press. Details.
