With the president of the United States out of town starting his own 10-day vacation, Vice President Joe Biden is too.

After speeches this week in Florida and Chicago, along with Democratic fundraisers for embattled members of Congress and administering one more ceremonial oath, Biden took part of Friday off to accompany his wife to the doctor's again, ending up at his Delaware home.

Here's how the official White House schedule describes the vice president's upcoming weekend;

Vice President Biden will be in Wilmington, DE on Saturday and Sunday. There are no public events scheduled.

Last weekend, on the other hand, after returning from his vacation, the vice president had the exact same empty schedule.
