    Bidenís Son Gets Ukrainian Oil Company Gig

    Vice President Joe Bidenís youngest son Hunter Biden has joined the board of directors of Ukraineís largest oil company at a time that the U.S. is urging Ukraine to develop energy independence from Russia and just days after the vice president visited Ukraine.

    The vice presidentís office and the White House rejected any suggestion that there was a conflict of interest.

    ďHunter Biden is a private citizen and a lawyer,Ē Vice President Bidenís spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff told ABC News. ďThe vice president does not endorse any particular company and has no involvement with this company.Ē

    White House spokesman Jay Carney said, ďHunter Biden and other members of the Biden family are obviously private citizens and where they work Ö does not reflect an endorsement by the administration or by the vice president or president.Ē

    According to a press release from the oil company, Burisma Holdings, Biden will help the company manage its relationships with ďinternational organizations,Ē in addition to overseeing the companyís legal unit.

    This happens all the time. Politics is a lifetime gig, and with politicians staying in the game longer and longer, fewer and fewer positions open up, forcing their kids to seek employment elsewhere until they're in their 40s or later (when the previous gen is looking at finally retiring), before taking up the family business (politics).

    That these kids are politically connected gives them a huge advantage, so they tend to land fairly prominent positions within some fairly large and important companies.

    Just noting the irony here. A "green" potential presidental canidate, who opposes the Key-stone pipeline, has a son in the dirty oil business.

    So, are conservatives here suggesting that Ukraine shouldn't seek energy independence from Russia?

    If it were not for the double standard, Liberals/Democrats would have no standards at all.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Liberal/Democrats, Conservative/Republicans, neither have any standards.
