Hey, Vice President Biden isn't the only one who can make a mistake. His press office yesterday showed it is equally as capable.
Usually his press people have to send out a statement clarifying what the vice president meant. On Monday, they had to send out an email clarifying what they meant.
But it was only a minor mistake. Like the city where the vice president was going. And the vice president's name.
"Vice President Buden Kicks Off $32 Million Renovation and Restoration of Wilimington Train Station," reads the subject line.
After all, they know it's Vice President Biden and not Buden.
But let's not be negative about this. That would be petty.
It's important to recognize progress. After all, these guys are getting better at this. The whole staff is.
By Thursday, it only took 90 minutes for the vice president's office to issue a statement clarifying that Biden did not want people holing up in caves.
Yesterday? The clarifying statement was sent out in just four minutes.
As Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving."
