Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday witnessed the newly-renovated Wilmington, Del. Amtrak station be named for him, and appeared humbled by the honor.Nothing like a government program you voted for to help fund your legacy.
Biden became famous for frequently traveling from his home town to Washington on Amtrak during his nearly four-decade Senate career, but said that he is not worthy of the accolade.
"The truth is, I don't deserve this, unless you reward longevity," Biden said, according to delawareonline.com.
The Wilmington station is now officially called the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Railroad Station.
A $37.7 million renovation project was recently completed at the Wilmington train station. Construction took almost two years. $20 million from the federal stimulus act, which Biden helped oversee, went toward the project.
