Jill Biden said Joe Biden was offered secretary of state job
It seems Vice President Joe Biden’s wife Jill Biden talks a little too much.
When the couple appeared on the “Oprah Winfrey Show” on the eve of the inauguration, Jill Biden revealed something the Obama administration wanted to keep private.
She told Oprah, “Joe had the choice to be secretary of state or vice president.” Joe Biden then said “Shhh” and the audience laughed.
Still, she continued, “OK, he did. If you’re secretary of state, you’ll be away, we’ll never see you.”
The Obama team quickly released a statement that said President Obama “offered Vice President Biden one job only — to be his running mate, and the vice president was thrilled to accept the offer.”
Jill Biden was probably telling the truth, but it was apparent the Obama team didn’t want that piece of information out there.
Especially since that makes it look like Hillary Clinton was Obama’s second choice for secretary of state, and no one wants to play second fiddle.
