Hardly. It seems like you can pick and choose what you want, it's all up for grabs. I see a bunch of politicions auctioning off jobs like a stock exchange or something!!! Meet the new boss, same as the new boss... Biden shushes wife after secretary of state slip WASHINGTON (AP) - The wife of Vice President-elect Joe Biden let it slip 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. Her comment came when the Bidens made a surprise appearance on Oprah Winfrey's show, recorded at the Kennedy Center. The vice president-elect tried to hush his wife as soon as the words came out of her mouth, with a loud "shhh!" Jill Biden said the job of vice president was better for the family, because as secretary of state he would travel too often.
