It is said that President John F. Kennedy's steadiness under pressure averted disaster during the Cuban Missile Crisis. A candidate's character and views on a wide range of issues are important in judging whether he or she will be an effective president. Those qualities are explored in depth in an hour-long conversation with Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman, and Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden.

In his 35 years in the Senate, Biden has dealt with all the key questions before the nation - including climate change, health care, the war in Iraq, terrorism, the economy and immigration.
