I am two days late with this diary, but I want to express my well-wishes to Vice President Joe Biden who had his 70th birthday on Tuesday.   I mean who wouldn't like this guy:

President Obama's Election Night Rally

And you anyone see his great cameo on NBC's Parks & Recreation?   Biden can fit in Hollywood with the best of them, and I wouldn't be surprised to see if be on Saturday Night Live with Jason Sudeikis playing him.   He'd just do his laugh and twinkle those blue eyes that people find sexy.  

And of course, Biden fits in almost anywhere.   He doesn't look out of place in Scranton, Pennsylvania where he grew up, and he doesn't look out of place with a bunch of bikers.

I like to think that Biden helps pull the President leftward like when Biden first came out in support of marriage equality and then Barack Obama followed his example.   Biden also re-introduced "malarkey" into the vernacular too.   Joe Biden would essentially have my vote in 2016 if he decided to run for President.   For now however, I will just enjoy seeing him as a great Vice President standing beside President Obama in one of the most consequential administrations in American history.

In closing, happy 70th Joe and may you have many more happy ones too.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
