Vice President Joe Biden visited a manufacturer in Manchester, N.H. Tuesday as part of an effort to highlight job training programs and had a moment described in the press pool report as “Peak Biden.” It came when the vice president was introduced to a 101-year-old woman, her daughter, and her granddaughter.
“God, I love you, mum,” Biden said to the 101-year-old, before adding, “I need a hug.”
“I need a hug too,” the woman replied, according to pool reporter Zachary Goldfarb.
During the stop, a reporter asked Biden if he would rule out running for president in 2016. Biden dismissed the question.
“I’m here about jobs, not mine,” he said.
