Senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper, along with “Nightline” producers Melinda Arons and Katie Hinman, spent the day with Vice President Joseph Biden in North Carolina. They sat down for an exclusive interview we’ll have tonight — where they talk impending health care vote, what Biden is telling undecided House Democrats, Israel, and the state of the economy in general. Jake has been blogging at “Political Punch” throughout the day and, of course sending along Twitter updates and pictures from @JakeTapper, including the one above inside Bullock’s Bar-B-Cue in Durham. Tune in tonight — will embed the segment in the morning. For now, here’s a clip of an instant Biden classic, from the White House St. Patrick’s Day celebration no less, in which he asked God’s blessing for the late mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen. The only problem? She’s alive.  </p UPDATE: As the clock on health care vote ticks, here’s the Tapper segment, “Regular Joe.”
