      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.
