Obama to Jill Biden: "Thanks for Putting Up with Joe"

President Obama today hailed the passage of new education reforms as he signed the health care reconciliation bill into law, but he also took a moment to show his lighter side.

The president, speaking at Northern Virginia Community College in Alexandria, Virginia, was introduced by Dr. Jill Biden, the vice president's wife. He used the moment to take a playful jab at Vice President Joe Biden, whose feisty comments -- like his recent "F-bomb" -- make their own headlines.

"Thank you Dr. Biden for that outstanding introduction, and for putting up with Joe," Mr. Obama said. Watch the moment at left.
