Did you see the Bidens on Oprah? While everyone was watching with bated breath to see what gaffe Joe would make, Jill Biden is the one creating headlines with her remarks. She let it be known that Joe Biden has his choice between Hillary’s job & the one that he accepted. It was funny to see her get shushed by her husband.For once,he was embarrassed by a slip-up that someone else made.It was funny because she seemed to get almost defiant when she offered a retort to his attempt at silencing her. This cute couple has one thing in common for sure.They both offer too much information.I’m sure that’s not something that Obama wanted Hillary to know.Look at the denial that was issued by Biden’s spokeswomen,according to The Huffington Post:
“Joe had the choice to be secretary of state or vice president,” she said. Her husband turned to his wife with his finger to his lips and a “Shhhh!” that sent the audience into laughter. “OK, he did,” Jill Biden said in her defense.
The vice president-elect blushed, grimaced and gave his wife a hug while the audience continued to erupt in laughter. “That’s right,” he finally said to his wife. “Go ahead.”
Mrs. Biden said she told him vice president would be better for the family.
“If you’re secretary of state, you’ll be away, we’ll never see you, you know,” she said. “I’ll see you at a state dinner once in a while.”
After the exchange aired on television three hours later, Biden spokeswoman Elizabeth Alexander denied Jill Biden’s account in a statement e-mailed to reporters.
“To be clear, President-elect Obama offered Vice President-elect Biden one job only _ to be his running mate,” the statement said. “And the vice president-elect was thrilled to accept the offer.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here:(http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/01/19/biden-had-a-choice-betwee_n_159159.html
