Ana is right that Biden has spent virtually his entire working life in the Senate, but there is one aspect of his life that suggests he is not entirely the creature of Washington you might think. In fact, he has kept himself grounded in his home state as few others have (or could):
Senator Biden lives in Wilmington, Delaware and commutes to Washington, DC when the Senate is in session. He is married to Dr. Jill Biden, the former Jill Jacobs, an educator in Delaware’s schools for over twenty years. She currently is a professor teaching at Delaware Technical Community College.
