Vice President Joe Biden showed up on television screens Thurs. Nov. 15 during a brief cameo on the NBC show Parks and Recreation.

The office of the vice president even tweeted out a behind the scenes shot during filming at the White House.

Leslie Knope’s last foray to Washington DC had her stopping by the Interior Department and hobnobbing with several senators, including John McCain, R-Ariz. 

This time around, fiancée Ben Wyatt gives Leslie the only engagement present better than a waffle tower: a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden.

During his cameo, Biden congratulated Leslie, who serves as Pawnee city councilwoman and previously led the Pawnee parks department, on her public service for Indiana.  Meanwhile Leslie, who has high political aspirations of her own, offered to take over as Secretary of State after Hillary Clinton steps down from the position
