Jill Biden Tells Oprah Her Hubbie Offered Choice of VP or Secy of State

During the taping of the Oprah Winfrey Show today, Dr. Jill Biden said that her husband, the vice president-elect, was given a choice of being either Vice President or Secretary of State.

This revelation came after Vice President-elect Joe Biden told Oprah that after then-Sen. Obama offered the job of V.P. he asked for some time to think about it and talk it over with his family.

Mrs. Biden interjected: "Joe had the choice of being Secretary of State or Vice President."

Her husband laughed.

Mrs. Biden then said the family picked the vice presidency because the position of Secretary of State would mean lots of travel. 

This can't be the kind of thing that would please Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY.

More to come.
