Biden - "It's Easy Being Vice President"

Does Vice President Joe Biden think he has it easy?

It depends on who you ask.

Biden was heard at Thursday's health care summit telling one lawmaker, "It's easy being vice president. You don't have to do anything."

The comment was made shortly before the summit resumed for the afternoon.  Biden was off-camera but the comment was caught on one of the network microphones in the room.

The lawmaker played along with Biden's remark saying, "It's like being the grandpa and not the parent," to which the VP responded, "Yeah, that's it!"

Biden spokesman Jay Carney tells Row 2, Seat 4 that the VP was "obviously joking, as any review of his schedule and responsibilities would make abundantly clear."
