Vice President Biden Has Jury Duty

Not even the title of Vice President can prevent one from getting out of jury duty.

Vice President Biden was called to his home town of Wilmington Delaware where he participated as a private citizen in a jury selection at the Superior Court of Delaware at the New Castle County Courthouse.

President Obama was called to duty last year, but did not participate.  Coincidently, Biden who said he didn't "consider myself different than any other person" , said he hopes the president will participate this year.

"I hope the president serves in Chicago if he is called", said Biden.

Biden and the other selected jurymen and women, actually ended up being dismissed.
