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.
