Joe Biden Sleeps With a Teacher

Discretion gets you nowhere.

For yesterday's event at the V.P.'s house, I was asked by Jill Biden's office to be the pool reporter for the NTOY celebration. My job was to write up a few quotes and a little color and feed it the media. So I did.

I came back to work and also wrote a post for this blog. I tried to be discreet and polite—the very things that journalists are taught not to do. I admit to withholding a quote or two.

Then, thanks to one of our savvy Web team members, I just received a link to The Huffington Post's website feeding back to me a quote that I shared with the rest of the world, but not you.

So, here it is: At the event, Vice President Biden said, "I've been sleeping with a teacher for a long time, but it's always been the same teacher." The quote was originally picked up by Politico's website.

If you're reading this pronouncement and you're wondering where and when he said it—or who that pool reporter was—now you know.
