Looks like the former veep isn’t planning a shuffleboard-and-crosswords kind of retirement. Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, have signed with the Creative Artists Agency to help “amplify” their post-White House agenda.

“Jill and I remain more dedicated than ever to addressing the critical issues of the day,” Biden said in a statement released by CAA.

Their work is likely to focus in part on the “cancer moonshot” initiative to end cancer they launched after the death of their son, Beau, from brain cancer. The couple have also established the Biden Foundation. And Biden will lead two new academic centers at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Delaware, they announced earlier this week.

Biden, who spent his entire career in elected office, has for years been one of the least-wealthy members of Washington’s elite political class, and friends have urged him to capitalize on his stature (and his pop-culture cachet – those aviators!) now that he’s a private citizen.

Which probably won’t be a problem. In the release, CAA President Richard Lovett predicted the Bidens “will build an unprecedented post-White House career.”
