I appears that Jill Biden isn't any better then her husband Joe at keeping her mouth shut…
The wife of Vice President-elect Joe Biden let it slip to Oprah Winfrey Monday that her husband had a pick of two jobs in the Obama administration.
Jill Biden said President-elect Barack Obama gave Biden the choice of being secretary of state or vice president. The vice president-elect tried to hush his wife as soon as the words came out of her mouth, with a loud "shhh!" that sent the audience into laughter.
They really are meant for one another, aren't they?
After giving away important administration secrets, Jill Biden explained why she prefered her husband to take the less-prestigious role as VP…
"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. But I said, if you are vice president, the entire family, because they worked so hard for the election, they can be involved. They can come to our home. They can go to events, they can be with us all the time. And that's what's important to us."
Coincidentally, that's pretty much exactly the same reason that Bill Clinton had for working so hard to secure the role of Secretary of State for his wife Hillary.
But in reverse.
