Bono Meets With VP Biden In White House


Vice President Joe Biden met with U2 frontman Bono yesterday to discuss global development, AIDS and efforts to fight poverty. The Vice President's office tweeted a photo from the meeting, which took place in his West Wing office, showing the two men engaged in conversation.

The singer and activist, 52, has been a leading advocate for Africa, drawing attention to issues ranging from poverty and hunger to AIDS, and has met with world leaders on a regular basis.

On Monday night (November 12), Bono gave the keynote address at the Global Social Enterprise Initiative at Georgetown University. Bono told the audience:

"Cuts can cost the lives of the poorest of the poor. It shouldn't be a hard case to make, but it is right now - in the halls of Congress, the Senate, maybe here in Healy Hall. But I put it to you: we must not let this economic recession become a moral recession. That would become a double cruelty."
