u s vice president cabinet to visit 2014 detroit auto show

Should you happen to be at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show next week, you might find Vice President Joe Biden checking out the 2015 Corvette Z06, and a number of Cabinet members trying to hold him back from taking it for a test drive.

The vice president is expected to visit the annual auto show January 15, and will be accompanied by Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker. Foxx will open the preview festivities for the press on Monday, while Pritzker will tour the show and give a speech before the Detroit Economic Club on Wednesday.

Other government officials expected to attend next week included outgoing National Highway Traffic Safety Administration administrator David Strickland and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder.

    The Veep AND the cabinet means the security will be so tight, it'll be the worst place for our TTAC reps to get inside information, and maybe also the worst place for a big reveal. If there weren't a changing of the guard at GM, there might have been some juicy quotes about Biden upstaging the Corvette splash. Come to think of it, there WILL be some juicy quotes about that from GM lower ranks, but we'll never get to hear them.

    Great photo. Joe will take credit for all the new American (whatever that means lately) car releases - Corvette, Mustang, and, well, probably not the Dart. He's a political nut, but I'd enjoy meeting him at a party.

      we settled fine with an African American president but i'm not sure if the we're ready for Joe Biden as the leader of the free world the photo is sublime... you would never see Obama like that... 1. the glasses 2. the scarf 3. the fingers pointing to the most important guy in the room 4. the kmart tan slacks 5. the VeePee junk bulging out there whats the TTAC urban legend that Biden doesnt have a huge portfolio for his retirement and that he owns a black Burt Reynolds Trans Am with a chicken on the bonnet?

    If the cabinet post holders try to stop Joe, they'll get run over. Tact isn't his thing. I've come to believe that the true job of the VP is to make impeachment unappealing to the other party. Quail was first and ever since…
