ABSTRACT
The author gives his opinion about the mentality of those who choose politics as their career, just like centrist Democrat Joe Biden. He wonders what childhood trauma or experience of powerlessness could have led them to actively seek the control of other people's lives. He declares that Biden's admission of being a Yankee fan in a neighborhood evenly split between Phils and Orioles made him hated by all the others. He concludes that his turning a deaf ear to criticism indicates a mind destined to grub for power.
