Well, this is classic Joe Biden.  While on a trip to Arizona, the vice president decided to give Obamacare some good PR by sitting down next to a woman named Jackie at a local pancake house to convince her of the program's benefits.

There's only one problem.  Jackie is Canadian; her country already has socialized medicine.  KTVK, a local Arizona news outlet, was there to capture the awkwardness.

"I just didn't know if I should say, 'I'm sorry, [I'm] Canadian, don't know if I can help you out," Jackie said, but noted that she supports Obamacare - and hopes this new health care entitlement works out in the United States.

At the same time, is anyone really surprised to see Vice President Biden trying to sell big government medicine to a Canadian?
