Vice President Joe Biden says no one in the U.S. Senate commands more respect than Sen. Jay Rockefeller.
Biden praised Rockefeller as a public servant with great character and integrity.
For his part, Rockefeller recalled it was his work as a VISTA volunteer that first brought him to West Virginia.
He says he's spent his entire career pursuing VISTA objectives: quality education, health care and jobs.
Rockefeller said the people of Emmons, W. Va., where he volunteered, "made me who I am and I love them for it."
