"Joe Had First Pick on VP or Sec State"

And here we longed for the days of ol' foot in mouth Joe! Seems his bride matches him toe to toe!

We thought no one could out gaffe the human gaffe machine, Joe Biden, though Barack Obama certainly tried his best during the campaign. Here is an indication that the Bidens were a match made in heaven!

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 cannot be good news to Mrs. Clinton after being a no show for veep, to discover she was sloppy seconds to Joe Biden for Sec State as well!

Mrs. Biden interjected: "Joe had the choice of being secretary of State or vice president." She then seemed to realize she'd said something she wasn't supposed to have said.

Her husband laughed. Said Oprah, trying to continue the conversation, "You said, 'Joe...?'"

"I said, 'Joe if you are secretary of State you will be away, I'll never see you,'" Mrs. Biden said. "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 ... They can come to our home, they can go to events, they can be with us and that is what is important to us."

Oprah turned to the VP-elect, asking "Were you worried about being number 2 because you wanted to be number one?"

"I think Barack was worried about it," the former senator said with a laugh.

Mr. and Mrs. Gaffemeister will be attending the inaugural in matching doghouses! Heh.
