Joe Biden is making a guest appearance in next week's installment of NBC's sitcom Parks and Recreation.
The Vice President's cameo occurs at the beginning of the episode when former Congressional campaign manager Ben Wyatt played by Adam Scott takes his fiancée Leslie Knope played by Amy Poehler to the White House to meet her longtime crush (video follows with commentary).
Women's magazines notoriously promote their ideal woman: thin, stylish, beautiful, sexually adventurous. And after seeing who Glamour named as its annual "Women of the Year," readers can now add "liberal" to the list of ideal qualities.

To make it clear the show isn't in the tank for Barack Obama's opponent, the real Hillary Clinton was allowed to address the nation rather than "SNL" actress Amy Poehler.
That should settle once and for all the questions about which candidate "SNL" is endorsing.
Hillary's editorial response immediately followed the opening sketch which, once again, was a lampoon of a recent debate between Clinton and Obama:
