'The Oprah Winfrey Show' holds a special segment at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. day and Barack Obama's imminent inauguration.
While President-elect Barack Obama was out celebrating the days leading to his inauguration, the VP Joel Biden and his wife Jill took time to tape an interview on "The Oprah Winfrey Show". In a special episode from Washington, D.C. on Monday, January 19, Oprah Winfrey managed to fish out a secret from Jill regarding her husband's political career.
During the chat, Jill mentioned that Joe initially was open to two choice of positions, the candidate of vice president and Secretary of the State. "I said, 'Joe, if you're Secretary of State you'll be away. I'll never see you. But if you're vice president the whole family can be involved,' " Jill exposed. Joe then added to the statement, "Jill said, you know, I think this is good for the family. And besides, we have public housing now."
Also in attendance of the episode that also celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. day, were stars Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Usher, will.i.am, Bono, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige and Seal. The last five celebrities were there to perform a new song called "America's Song" which is dedicated to Obama.
