Yesterday, Ashton Carter was sworn in as Secretary of Defense by Joe Biden, who apparently took a liking to Mrs. Carter. In fact, if you read into this photo, you might suspect that Joe was whispering some sweet nothings into Mrs Carter's ear while poor old Ashton was distracted giving his acceptance speech.
"Howz about you and me slipping upstairs?"
Hopefully, Mr Carter will be more observant as secretary of defense. If not, he will be following in the footprints of his predecessor, the hapless Chuck Hagel, not to mention the current head of DHS, Jeh Johnson, and his own predecessor Janet Napolitano.
