Forty-five year-old US Democratic Senator Joe Biden undergoes his second brain surgery in less than four months. The first surgery was to correct a larger aneurysm on the left side of his cranium, while this one is done to correct a smaller one on his right side. The Senator withdrew from the presidential race last September, after it was revealed that he had plagiarized a journal article during his first year in law school.
