WASHINGTON – The wife of Vice President-elect Joe Biden let it slip to Oprah Winfrey Monday 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. The vice president-elect tried to hush his wife as soon as the words came out of her mouth, with a loud "shhh!" that sent the audience into laughter.

I think it's kind of funny (and I thought it was cute how Joe responded) but I do feel a little sorry for Hillary. I hope she's not too embarrassed. I doubt it because it's pretty clear that Obama never really considered her for VP. And her new job is certainly going to be better and more fun than going back to Senator.
I think Obama probably did (unofficially) ask Joe which job he'd prefer and he talked about it with Jill and decided on VP. Then Obama officially offered it to him.
