Biden Takes to "Confined Space" for P.M. Commute

Vice President Joe Biden might have mistakenly advised America to avoid "confined spaces" when traveling by air or on the ground, but even after his gaffe on the Today Show yesterday, he still took the train from Union Station to his Delaware home, according to his office. There's also plane travel in his future, because Biden reportedly plans to travel to Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia, and Herzegovina this May. So much for avoiding planes and subways!

According to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Biden would have said that "If [people are] feeling sick, they should stay off of public transit or confined spaces" if he had a chance to reword his previous commentary. That's certainly sound advice for anyone feeling ill, in any corner of the world, and at any time, so it shouldn't impede upon your plans to book a luxury hotel.

While Biden's people backtracked to avoid a backlash, the press is tracking swine flu cases closely. President Barack Obama said that the U.S. is taking "all necessary precautions" to remain ahead of swine flu. He also reminded Americans to wash their hands often, cover their mouths while coughing, and to stay home if feeling sick. With careful efforts on the part of the general public, we'll be able to book our trips to luxury hotels worldwide without worry.

Since Biden's already been seen in "confined spaces" and President Obama is presenting a positive view on preventative measures in the U.S., we're planning a vacation or two out of town right now.
