Joe Biden's Favorite Veep? Dan Quayle

"No can say a negative thing about Dan Quayle," Vice President Biden told reporters today at his official residence on the grounds of the US Naval Observatory.

Biden noted that Quayle was vice president when the swimming pool was built in back of the vice president's residence, stating, "he built that pool."

"He's my favorite vice president," said Biden. "And my granddaughters love it."

After he welcomed a number of foreign leaders to the vice presidential residence today and posed for photos, Biden was heard to say, "now gentleman - I want to show you the Dan Quayle swimming pool."

He added: "I voted all those years for public housing. I didn't know it was gonna be this good."
