Even Senators have to cool their heels at airports every once in a while. Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-Md.) and his wife, Myrna, were spotted chatting while waiting to board a flight at San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday.
“I overheard his wife talking about the Senate spouse book club she’s a part of,” our tipster tells us.
While it’s unclear who’s in the book club with Myrna Cardin, it is clear that she is a tech-savvy reader; she was reportedly carrying a Kindle.
No word on whether they were on the West Coast for business or pleasure. Calls to Cardin’s office were not returned.
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
