President Barack Obama today surprised Vice President Joe Biden with the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction. Other recent recipients of Medals of Freedom with Distinction: Pope John Paul II, President Ronald Reagan, and Gen. Colin Powell.
Job well done, Mr. Vice President. Your years of service and dedication to the nation are well known and much appreciated.
(Now if only you and the President would stop making me cry. I’m running out of tissues.)
