ECU Professor To Dine With Vice President Biden

A political science professor at a North Carolina university is having dinner with Vice President Joe Biden.

East Carolina University says that Jody Baumgartner, an assistant professor of political science at the school, has been invited to dine with Biden on Tuesday night. Baumgartner and five other guests will speak with Biden about the vice presidency and how other leaders have approached the job.

The guests will also discuss with Biden about what vice presidential tactics have worked and what tactics have not.

Baumgartner authored the book "The American Vice Presidency Reconsidered," which documents how the role of vice president has changed over time.

Baumgartner said "the invitation came as quite a surprise."
