Washington D.C. (FTB newswire) Vice President Joe Biden had an unusual piece of good luck today. The V.P. was pulling weeds in the First Lady's garden when he spotted a strange looking clover. When the VPOTUS looked closer, it was a seven leaf clover!
Secret Service agents rushed to the V.P.'s side when he nearly succumbed to over-excitement. Agent Mike Mulroney said, "He was dancing an Irish Jig and shouting Blarney over and over. At first we thought he was having another mental breakdown. When he showed us what he found, we went back to our posts."
Botanist's claim a four leaf clover is unusual; one with seven leaves is extraordinary. The last reported find was in 1864 by Confederate General John C. Breckinridge. He spotted the elusive plant while dodging Yankee cannonballs. Breckinridge served as Vice President to James Buchanan from 1857 to 1861. He was later accused of treason and fled to Cuba.
Biden has no special plans for his "Lucky Seven" as he calls it. During the daily White House Press Conference, Robert Gibbs was asked about the find, "There's no doubt in the President's mind that Joe (Biden) is the luckiest SOB in the Administration."
