A new section of the White House website is devoted to promoting Vice President Biden, featuring photos of the Biden in action and audio descriptions of the stories behind the photos.
Biden, who is expected to run for president, no doubt will be seeking to to burnish his image and expand his visibility as 2016 approaches. The new webpage, titled “Being Biden,” offers him a chance to get a little personal with viewers while showcasing his connection to various voting blocs – so far including women, Catholics, and hunters.
Among pieces in the series are audio spots and photos that allow him to tout his work over the years on the Violence Against Women Act – bragging that he “wrote” the original bill – his visit to the Inauguration Mass of Pope Francis, and a dinner for hunters that he has been “attending for over 30 years.” Below, in one of the photos, Biden attempts a kind of fist bump with one of the hunters:
From the White House description of the “Being Biden”:
In this audio series Vice President Biden will tell the story behind a photo – of where he was, why it matters to him, and how the experience fits into the broader narrative of this Administration. From meetings at the White House to travels around the country, the Vice President will share his perspective in candid, behind-the-scenes snapshots. In other words, he’ll explain what it’s like “Being Biden.”
The series went up March 3, and the most recent post was added April 12.
