Coming and going: Obama and Biden to be out of country simultaneously

Washington (CNN) - It's the ultimate 'who's minding the store' question: For the first time since taking office, both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will be out of the country at the same time (if only for a few hours).

Vice President Biden is vice president of the United States everywhere that he goes."
