2. POTUS and VPOTUS have appeared together publicly at funerals.

It's not that unusual. In fact, it's almost par for the course in many situations.

They both -- along with Bill Clinton -- made it to Daniel Inoye's funeral.



EVERYONE made it to Ted Kennedy's funeral:


Dorothy Height's funeral, with Pelosi, Reid, Clyburn, HRC:

I think Obama preferred to not attend, and he has a Vice President, and that IS what they do. Even though they do other things as well, nowadays.

Biden's association with the Judiciary Committee (which everyone will be reminded of when CONFIRMATION is released on HBO) is a reasonable justification to send him along to do that duty.
