Republican Mitt Romney may have worked in one last campaign stop in Cleveland today, but he had Vice President Joe Biden on his tail.
Biden, daughter Ashley and granddaughters Naomi and Natalie mingled and sat for breakfast at the Landmark Restaurant, a Greek diner in Cleveland, guaranteeing the Democratic ticket some free media along with Romney in the hotly contested Ohio market.
Biden complimented one man on his “biceps,” and said he looks like he played football. The man wore a T-shirt reading: “King of the Jungle.”
Turning to tow older men whom he said also look like they play football, Biden pointed to his body man Fran Person, who was a lineman at South Carolina.
“Every place we go, we keep picking up teammates. I got you, man,” Biden said.
A woman asked the vice president: “I’m going to ask you one question, Mr. Biden. After Obama wins this election, are you going to run?”
“Oh, I’m going to go back home and run for county council or something,” the vice president and former longtime senator from Delaware replied.
Earlier in the day, casting his ballot in Delaware, Biden was asked by a reporter whether this was “the last time you will vote for yourself.”
Biden grinned and said: “No, I don’t think so.”
