Biden: The first time they played 'Hail to the Chief' I asked, 'Where is he?'
Washington (CNN) Joe Biden quipped Wednesday evening that the first time he heard "Hail to the Chief" as President he asked, "Where is he?"
Calling the storied presidential anthem a "great tune" during a CNN town hall in Ohio , Biden said that "you feel a little self-conscious" hearing it as commander in chief.
"You think I'm kidding.
I'm not," he continued, adding, "I am not at all self-conscious about the power that goes with the office as relates to resolving issues."
Biden's comments came as he reflected on life in the White House as the oldest President in American history and the role that his years as vice president under President Barack Obama played in informing how he views the job.
"These are issues I've dealt with my whole life.
Whether I'm good or bad, I have more experience coming into office than anyone who's ever held that office.
I have done -- I've been deeply steeped in foreign policy, the justice system -- not that I'm right.
I don't mean that.
But nothing has come before me where I've gone, 'Oh, my God, I never thought, you know, what the difference is.'
