Wait, does Jill know her husband voted for the Iraq war?
Via New Yorker:
[A]fter Obama secured the nomination, he called Biden to ask if he would allow himself to be vetted for Vice-Presidential consideration. Biden declined, asking his aides, Can anyone even name Lincoln’s Vice-President? But Jill Biden urged him to reconsider. She told me, “I was angry at George Bush for getting us into that war. To me, it was so senseless.” She had pushed her husband to run for President, because, she said, “You’ve got to end that war.” Now the Vice-Presidency was another chance. Moreover, she added, “Joe started out in politics because of civil rights. And then for this to evolve and then come to this historic moment, with the first black man ever elected to be President of the United States, and for Joe to be a major part of that, I thought was really almost a fairy tale.” There was only one problem. “What was it going to be like to be No. 2?” she said. “And for him to be supporting someone else’s positions?” Biden had never worked for anyone, and he was not sure he could. He told a friend about the decisive conversation with his wife. He asked her, “How am I going to handle this?” To which she replied, “Grow up.”
