Left feet, long lines and loving celebs at balls
WASHINGTON – Joe Biden wants to make one thing clear: he can't dance.
Biden joked about his two left feet at multiple balls Tuesday night.
"The thing that frightens me the most (is) I'm going to have to stand in that circle and dance in a minute," he said at the Commander in Chief Ball. At that, he laughed and did a quick sign of the cross.
At the Neighborhood Ball, he joked about killing time to avoid dancing.
"The last thing you need is to have a vice president sandwiched between a brand new president and all his star power up there. I learned a long time ago when to hush up. If you turn around and look at that screen, they've got me down to 22 seconds. The reason I want to keep talking is because I can't dance," he said.
But dance he did, stiffly, with wife Jill to "Have I Told You Lately."
"I may not be able to dance, but i sure like holding her," he said.
