Not only did Hillary Clinton get snubbed as Barack Obama’s Vice President – she was second fiddle for Secretary of State to none other than Joe Biden! It appears Joe Biden’s wife is as prone to verbal blunders as the Vice President is.
Joe Biden‘s wife said on the Oprah Winfrey show that he had a pick of two jobs in the Obama administration. Biden immediately tried to “shush” his wife, but it was too late.
“Joe had the choice to be secretary of state or vice president.” — Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden
Not only was that revealed, but Jill Biden made the choice that Joe take the job as Vice President:
“If you’re secretary of state, you’ll be away, we’ll never see you, you know. If you’re vice president, the entire family, because they worked so hard for the election, can be involved.”
Biden did not deny the revelations, but his spokesman later claimed that it wasn’t true. I guess it is better to make Biden’s wife look crazy than for people to know the truth that Hillary Clinton was not Barack Obama’s first choice. One can only wonder if she was second choice.
