Author, The White House Vice Presidency: The Path to Significance, Mondale to Biden

Professor Goldstein is available to comment on Vice President Biden’s campaign announcement. As a vice presidential scholar, Goldstein is inherently familiar with the historical significance of a run by a former VP and can speak to the significant impacts this will have on the campaign. In a recent post, Goldstein says “history teaches us that position [VP] often helps transform previously unsuccessful presidential candidates into presidential candidates and even presidents.”

Goldstein has written for and appeared on national and international outlets discussing Biden, his campaign and his influence as a politician and vice-president.
