Jill Biden has long chartered an untraditional path for a career politician' wife.
She has four degrees --a bachelor's, two master's and a doctorate. She raised three children and has five grandchildren. For 31 years she's been married to a U.S. Senator, although few of her students at a Delaware community college knew it, and she continued teaching English there four days a week while her husband campaigned for the vice presidency. She even did a little modeling in her 20s.
And now it appears Biden, 57, could become one of the nation's few second ladies to hold down a job while her husband occupies the office of the vice presidency.
