Biden's plagiarism: zeal to rekindle idealism?

In a Dec. 3 piece (Joe Biden, Democratic White House contender), Reuters reports on Biden:

He dropped out after charges of plagiarism in one speech and exaggerating his academic record. Biden said, "In my zeal to rekindle idealism I made some mistakes."
