I suppose it is quite plausible that anyone could be late for their train. Anyone at all.
Even Joe Biden.
(Although, as Atrios notes, there is a train from Wilmington to Stamford about every 45 minutes. Curiouser and curiouser…)
UPDATE: My Left Nutmeg has much more on the Biden no show.
I was at the Lieberman event, and the offical explanation for Biden’s absence, as offered by Lieberman, was that Biden was just back from Iraq and couldn’t make the train.
Checking the Amtrak schedule, I see an Acela Express leaving Wilmington at 8:18 AM, arr Stamford 10:46, which would be cutting it close, but whatever.
The earlier train left at 6:28.
Lieberman mentioned that his son and Biden’s son went to law school together, the two are friends, Biden is a great American, and they hope to reschedule, but no date was mentioned….
And, of course, I can see how Biden would be late getting back from Iraq on Saturday and all…
