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

    Pathetic. With all that experience this is the time to give back to society in a big way given her status as wife of the nations VP. Useless like her husband. Get out to schools and work with educators and make suggestions. Is English is all she knows? So what if she has a PH.D. ACT English score was broken in 2000 by an immigrant student in Sacramento community college. First in the city's history and probably the nations.

    "How much has R. Murdoch invested in Palin? "

    By all accounts, not nearly as much as G. Soros invested in Obama.

    So, Jill Biden (someone who arguably does not need an income) has taken a teaching position at a local school. I wonder what other well qualified person did not get the job, and is still out there in this job market trying to put food on the table.

    I commend her for staying at the public school and community college level of teaching. at least she is not one of those women who want to set at home and the good thing is she chosen to go into the public school system instead of some private school my hat go off to her./
