Joe Biden on the job ahead

Obama’s main man plans to reinvent the VP job

In laying out his plan to be more hands-on when he takes over as the VP, Joe Biden speaks critically of Dick Cheney, saying that his predecessor was largely ineffective despite wielding an immense amount of power. In the interview, his first with a major daily, Biden says part of the VP job will be to continue meeting weekly with Obama’s national security team and top-level domestic advisors, adding he wants to be “the last guy in the room on every major decision.”
