Jill Biden's Slip

Oops! Joe Biden is known as a gaffe machine, but it appears the foible runs in the family. Jill Biden, at a taping of Oprah with her husband today, said the vice president-elect was given his pick of plum roles in the Obama administration: vice president or secretary of state. “Joe had the choice of being secretary of state or vice president,” she said, to audible shushing from Joe. “I said, ‘Joe, if you are secretary of state, you will be away, I’ll never see you. We will see you at a state dinner once in a while.' But I said if you are vice president, the entire family, because they worked so hard for the election, they can be involved.” Over to you, Hillary.
