Vice President Joe Biden was in Boston yesterday and talked about why he was rooting for the Red Sox.

Here's the anecdote from the Globe's Shira Schoenberg on our Political Intelligence blog:

Biden said his lead Secret Service man is from Boston. Before his plane landed, Biden said, I said everyone bow their head. Were going to say a prayer that Boston wins the wild card spot. ... Im worried if in fact they dont, hes going to be so damn miserable he will not jump in front of a bullet.

Biden is from Delaware, so he's probably actually pulling for the Phillies. But any good politician knows his audience.
