Dr. Jill Biden

Dr. Biden is in New York today, Friday June 12th to deliver a commencement address at Kingsborough Community College. Dr. Biden appeared last week at Gotham Hall in Manhattan, addressing a warm and receptive crowd gathered to celebrate gay and lesbian life at an awards ceremony.

Politico shares an interesting tidbit about Dr. Biden, writing that she insisted that her Secret Service detail get rid of suits and ties, when they attended her at NOVA university, when she teaches. When they turned up the next day in sweaters, ties and Dockers, she said “not really.”

Even though Dr. Biden doesn’t want to stand out, she’s taking an increasingly visible on Team Obama AND she is achieving her recognition on her own terms in the limelight of a very popular First Lady Michelle Obama.
