In a surprise formal address on November 12th, President Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Vice President Biden. An emotional ceremony, Obama called Biden “the best vice president America’s ever had” and a “lion of American history.” President Obama also added: “To know Joe Biden is to know love without pretense, service without self-regard, and to live life fully.” The Vice President was overcome with tears and dumbstruck at the prestigious award given to him, saying he had no “inkling” it was going to happen. “If you can’t admire Joe Biden as a person you’ve got a problem,” Obama said. “He’s as good a man as God ever created.”
The ceremony was bittersweet for both the President and Vice President, with both leaving the White House imminently.
