"Isn't it a bitch? This vice president thing?"
That was Vice President Joe Biden, speaking at the Harvard Institute of Politics on Thursday in response to a question from someone who introduced himself as the vice president of the student body.
Biden, whose legendary penchant for unfiltered commentary has gotten him in trouble plenty of times before, immediately realized that his quip might come off the wrong way.
"That was a joke, that was a joke," Biden said. "Best decision I ever made. I'm joking. That was a joke."
