Many fine speeches and elegant words have floated through the halls of Harvard University over the centuries, but Vice President Joe Biden's Thursday night comment will probably not be considered a fine speech or elegantly worded by future generations.
It all stemmed from an introduction: A student took the mic to ask a question after Biden's foreign policy address at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, as WBZ-TV reported, but when the student identified himself as the vice president of the student body, Biden couldn't help interjecting.
"Ain't it a b***h?" Biden asked.
“Excuse me, I mean the vice president thing," he continued as the audience reacted loudly and the student questioner stammered. “I mean whoa. How do you feel about it now? I’m joking, I’m joking. Best decision I ever made. That was a joke. That was a joke.”
Biden went on to affirm that he loves his job and, "I love the guy I work with."
