Joe Biden’s relevant political timeline

The Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, has been in politics for most of his adult life – 47 years. Check out some of the most relevant landmarks of his political career below. I’ve also included parts of his personal life in the timeline, as I would imagine some *Hunter Biden* will pop up during some or all of the debates.

I can die a happy man never having been president of the United States of America. But it doesn’t mean I won’t run.
