Former Vice President Joe Biden is comin’ atcha. Beginning in earnest on Monday, he will be out there promoting his new book, “Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose.”
The title of the book comes from a conversation he had with his son Beau after Beau had been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. “Promise me, Dad,” said Beau. “Give me your word that no matter what happens, you’re going to be all right.” Beau died within a year, in May 2015.
Biden’s 19-city “American Promise Tour” – which some are saying is the kind of thing an aspiring candidate would do — lands in Boston on Dec. 4 at the Wilbur Theatre. But Biden will also be appearing all over TV in the meantime. On Sunday, he’ll talk to Oprah on “SuperSoul Sunday,” at 11 a.m. And then on Monday, he will take over NBC’s morning programming. At 7 a.m., he’ll sit down with Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie for an interview. At 8, he will take questions from the public on the plaza. At 9, he and his wife, Jill, will sit for a live interview with Megyn Kelly. And finally, at 10, he’ll mingle with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.
Not enough? Have a Biden nightcap, as he appears on CBS’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Monday at 11:35 p.m.
