WASHINGTON (CNN) – Jill Biden is back in the classroom: The veteran professor and wife of Vice President Jill Biden began a new job at a DC-area community college Tuesday.

The White House said that Mrs. Biden will teach two English courses this semester as an adjunct professor at Northern Virginia Community College.

Biden has taught English in public schools and community colleges for nearly three decades, half of that at Delaware Technical & Community College.

    Watch all the GOPers find something negative about this: OH NO, SHE'S EDUCATING THE NEXT GENERATION WHICH MEANS THEY'LL BE LESS LIKELY TO BE FOOLED BY GOP SHENANIGANS...OH NOES!!!

    So, I understand she isn't the first lady, but really? Aside from the security concerns, let's take a step back from stupid, and think of all the other things she could be doing with her charitable time, beyond teaching at the community college. The snippet doesn't say if she's drawing pay, but either way, she could be doing a college tour, she could be overseas speaking to other educators to become an advocate for improving the failed US school system... so much for high hopes.
