VP Biden Successfully Avoids Oil

Vice President Joe Biden visited the Gulf Coast to assess the spill response. The White House described his trip:

During the trip, the Vice President visited New Orleans, Louisiana, and Pensacola, Florida, to survey the response efforts, visit with gulf residents impacted by the spill, and meet with area officials.
White House photos captured VP Biden surveying computer technology, clean brooms, unused crab pots and an American flag. The Vice President avoided contact with oil, at least in the official version of the story.

Biden promised more skimmers, then left for Tampa to have dinner with General David Petraeus and his wife. Did they discuss how western companies will sell Afghans on safe exploration of the country's $1 trillion in mineral wealth?
