Vice President Joe Biden was reminiscing last night about the reasons he loved being a Senator, mainly because he enjoyed being lazy and not having to "produce" at a real job. From Byron York:
Vice President Joe Biden offered a frank assessment of his career in remarks at a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night. According to a White House pool report, Biden, surrounded by the city's movers and shakers, praised former Mayor Richard M. Daley and then said: "I never had an interest in being a mayor 'cause that's a real job. You have to produce. That's why I was able to be a senator for 36 years."
If Biden's real job was to embarrass the office of vice president, his production level sure would be considered high.
