Vice President Joe Biden, speaking in Philadelphia this afternoon at the International Association of Fire Fighters 51st Convention, said, "I wish my kids would become wealthy."

Biden is the father of three living children, Ashley Biden, Beau Biden, and Hunter Biden, all of whom would appear to be doing just fine financially.

At the speech, Biden also admitted he was a hard sell to his wife. “Nothing in my life has ever happened by acclamation," said Biden. "Nothing. As a matter of fact, I had to ask my wife to marry me five times before she said yes.”
