Here is the link: www.c-spanarchives.org/library/index.php

So I was browsing around CSPAN's Video Library and looked at what I found!  During the 1988 primary, there was a First Ladies Forum where the wives of the Democratic presidential candidates each gave brief speeches about the issues important to them.  Jill is second to speak and her introduction starts around 10:00 minutes in.  Aside from those puffy shoulder dresses (ugh those were ugly), she still looks and sounds exactly the same more than 20 years later!


The most famous community college professor in the nation - the Second Lady of America, Dr. Jill Biden - exhorted graduates of Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn Friday to continue their education, even while reveling in the day's accomplishments.

"You all came to this college at many different stages in life and today, after hard work and sacrifices, long hours and sleepless nights, you all walk across the same stage - having accomplished something no one can ever take away from you," Biden told the colleges 44th graduating class. "The education gained on campuses like this one will provide the knowledge that will power the 21st century."

There are some great photos available here at GettyImages, but they're all watermarked. If anyone has access and would like to share them, that would be great!

Jill Biden was standing in a brilliant aqua dress inside a packed Gotham Hall in Manhattan one evening last week, waiting to address hundreds of people at an awards ceremony for a leading gay and lesbian organization.

One by one, they approached her.

Some just wanted to say hello. Many of them hugged her. A few complimented her shoes. But most gushed about how excited they were to hear her speak.

At one point, Biden turned to her staff, flashed a broad smile and said, “I’m a teacher — when did I become a speaker?”

It was just one of the signs that Biden has come into her own in her new role as the nation’s “second lady.”Collapse )

I didn't hear about it until now but apparently Jill was on <a href="http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/31062290#31062290/">The Today Show</a> promoting USO which is assembling packages to American troops overseas.

<a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Dr-Biden-We-Support-One-Another/">Here</a> is the White House blog post about it.

I hadn't heard about this before today:

Dr. Jill Biden to Speak at the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network's Respect Awards

GLSEN is very pleased to announce confirmation of a very special guest at the Respect Awards - New York gala: Dr. Jill Biden, wife of the Vice President and a lifelong educator. Dr. Biden will also provide brief remarks at the gala dinner, which will be held at Gotham Hall in New York City on June 1. GLSEN is excited to welcome someone with a long history of working with and advocating for young people, particularly some of the students most vulnerable to bullying and harassment.


And here's another picture from the spelling bee last night, under the cut.Collapse )
