In an exclusive interview with Good Morning America's Juju Chang, Vice President Joe Biden and his wife said they both had Valentine's surprises in store for the other but for the time being their lips were sealed.
"Mine are seldom as good as hers," Biden said, "but lots of times they sparkle, you know, which helps."
For the vice president, last year's surprise involved Valentine-themed decorations on the windows of his West Wing office.
"All in red were, you know, Jill loves Joe, and all these hearts and Valentines," Biden said.
For the Obamas, one local itinerary missing from the bunch is for Valentine's Day.
The Obama family will spent the Valentine's Day/President's Day weekend at Camp David. Last year, they returned to Chicago where the president and first lady enjoyed a Valentine's Day dinner prepared for them by Oprah's chef at the posh Table Fifty Two Restaurant.
