Newly nominated Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama ran out on stage Wednesday night to thank Sen. Joseph R. Biden and his family, in a surprise appearance at the convention.
But there was no mention of Hunter Biden, the power lobbyist who has drawn questions on the Obama-Biden ticket’s outsider status.
As reported by my colleague Jim McElhatton, Hunter has lobbied on behalf of the University of Delaware and worked for credit-card giant MBNA, Sen. Biden’s largest campaign contributor. Hunter has also become a wide-open target for Obama critics.
