If it were truly representative of Biden's character, I think we all ought to care. However, in this case, I have to defend Biden. It's true that he used Neil Kinoch's words without attribution in a speech, but from what I understand, it was a speech he repeated on several occasions during that campaign and in most of those instances, he *did* attribute those words properly. I think this was more a case of making a mistake rather than intellectual theft and deceit.

This is true. He used that speech as hid stump speech and always attributed that part t the author, except in that one instance - which just happened to be recorded. It was a mistake. I'm glad you have the integrity to bring it up. Some on your side will continue to push this even when they know the truth.
