CANFIELD, Ohio – A woman at the Canfield Fair in Ohio Friday afternoon told Vice President Joe Biden it’s important for him and the president to “keep the chair,” a reference to Clint Eastwood’s performance Thursday at the Republican National Convention, where he spoke to an invisible “President Obama” in a chair on the convention stage.

“You gotta keep that chair,” Bev Kalmer of Poland, Ohio, said before the vice president leaned in and pecked her on the lips.

Kalmer told reporters she’s a big fan of Biden and Obama but stressed how important it is for them to get re-elected. Asked if she thought Biden had a shot at a 2016 run, she said, “I don’t know. We’ve got to keep the chair.”

She paused, “You got that? The invisible chair.”
