A VP lunch run menu of filibusters and hoagies


At about 11:10 a.m. EST, Thursday, the Vice Presidential pool rolled up to Capriotti’s, a Delaware-based Italian hoagie chain — one of Vice President Joe Biden’s favorite — celebrating its grand opening in downtown Washington, D.C.

AP White House reporter Josh Lederman did a play-by-play on Twitter.

Not even a lunch run allows the Vice President to step away from politics. While in line, the former senator from Delaware was asked if he supported Harry Reid’s push for the “nuclear option,” which would reform the filibuster in the Senate.

While needing no help to answer the reporters, it appears the Vice President did need some help to pay for his meal.
