U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn made a nice friendly jab to Vice President Joe Biden at a House Democratic policy conference in suburban D.C. today, The Washington Post reported.

Biden was introduced to the crowd by Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), an assistant minority leader and close friend of Biden's, who joked about the vice president's frequent trips to South Carolina, an early presidential primary state.

"Seems every time I turn around I’m bumping into Joe Biden in the Palmetto State," he said, adding later: "He is vying for favorite son status."
