The Joe Biden Show Stops by South African Embassy

Biden and wife Jill took a short motorcade ride across the street from their residence to the embassy on a cold, drizzly Monday morning. Stopping out front to look at the newly installed statue of Mandela, Biden called him "the most remarkable man I met in my whole career."
Biden recalled traveling all the way to South Africa in 1977 to meet  Mandela , but he was unable to because he was in the midst of a 27-year prison sentence.
