A fan of Joe Biden's posted a petition on the White House website asking the Obama administration to authorize a TV program featuring the vice president.
USA Today reported Sunday it was probably viral videos of Biden glad-handing while swearing in new senators that inspired the fan to request a "recurring" TV show depicting the vice president in his "daily activities" of posing in multiple photo opportunities with children and mothers, giving kudos to lawmakers and thoroughly enjoying himself in the process.
The petition, which suggests such a TV show be aired on C-SPAN, reads:
"Vice President Joe Biden has a demonstrated ability to bring people together, whether at the negotiating table or at the neighborhood diner. ... Such a program would educate the American public about the duties and responsibilities of their vice president, while providing a glimpse of the lighthearted side of politics even in the midst of contentious and divisive national debates."
