(Newser) – Well, this could get awkward: Joe Biden has a thing for an Obama, and not the one you might think. “I like him,” the VP-elect told a USA Today reporter who ran across him at a Chicago hotel gym today. “I love her.” Biden, who said he was hitting the health club because he packed on 6 pounds campaigning, also called Michelle Obama “the most impressive person I've met in 35 years.”
