Senator Joe Biden flashes a smile outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre before a taping of The Late Show With David Letterman on July 31, 2007. Joe Biden was born on November 20, 1942, so he turned 65 in the year this photo was taken.
At the time of his visit with Letterman, Biden had just filed as a candidate for the Democratic Party's nomination in the 2008 presidential election. In the end, he was defeated by fellow candidate Barack Obama, and instead became Obama's vice president from 2009-17. Biden finally became president in 2021, after defeating incumbent Donald Trump in the elections of 2020.
