'You know that I've been unable to get the briefings that ordinarily would have come by now, ' Biden said during a brief glimpse of the meeting offered to a small pool of reporters.

"If we have to wait until (inauguration day) January 20 to start that planning, it puts us behind for a month, a month and a half", Biden said. She has a degree in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
