WASHINGTON The wife of Vice President-elect Joe Biden let it slip 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.
Her comment came when the Bidens made a surprise appearance on Oprah Winfrey s show, recorded at the Kennedy Center.
The vice president-elect tried to hush his wife as soon as the words came out of her mouth, with a loud shhh!
Jill Biden said the job of vice president was better for the family, because as secretary of state he would travel too often.
