Biden Rips Santorum on Education

At few junctures during the Republican primary race so far, Vice President Joe Biden has taken it upon himself to comment on the crop of candidates. On his way to Ames, Iowa, for a speech at Iowa State University, the VP decided that it was time for him to weigh in. Biden responded to Rick Santorum's recent comment that President Obama's mission to send every American to college or at least vocational school is snobby. "I think there is an ideological divide between Rick Santorum and all of America on this. I don't think it's between the parties," Biden told a reporter with Radio Iowa, Thursday. "Look, I've been going to college campuses and high schools all across America for the past six months talking about what the facts are. Six out of the 10 jobs over the next 10 years are going to require ... either a certificate or a degree beyond high school. It's that simple."
