You know where the President lives, but how much do you know about where the Vice President lives? (Turns out, they don’t live in a carriage house behind the White House.) Bethany has some surprisingly interesting stories about Number One Observatory Circle, including the time that then-VP Joe Biden *maaaaaaybe* spilled the beans on a super-secret part of the house.
