Vice President Joe Biden has a lot of work, and campaigning, to do.
But, that won't stop him from visiting some school kids!
Joe completed a two-day campaign trip through Nevada Thursday morning, then he popped by Matt Kelly Elementary School in Las Vegas for a surprise visit -- and it was almost too cute for words!
Check out the pool report. ...
NORTH LAS VEGAS -- The kids were waiting for Joe on an asphalt basketball court and shouted "Biden! Biden!" as the VP walked up in his blue jacket and slacks (no aviators).
"Oh my goodness," Biden said as he approached the first group of students.
They were clustered in three groups in an attempt to control the chaos. A couple of teachers greeted Biden first. And he posed for pictures with them.
Then he said to the students: "Hey everybody here going to college?!"
The children, who looked to be 5 or 6 year-olds, pressed close to Biden -- and some of them hugged his legs.
One youngster, a boy who looked to be 8 or 9, said: "Can you tell Barack Obama something for me?"
"Sure," Biden said.
"Can you tell him to come here?" the boy said.
"Well he's back East now," Biden said, but indicated he'd pass the message.
Biden tried to move on to the next cluster of very excited children. "Oh no, I can't move," Biden said. "I've got someone stuck to my hip."
A teacher came up to Biden, describing herself as a supporter and told him he was great in the debate. Biden kissed her cheek. She said loudly, "Vice President Biden kissed me on the cheek!"
"My wife's a teacher," Biden said.
Biden then picked up three girls one-by-one.
"Thanks for letting me come to the playground," Biden said. "I wish I could play basketball."
Biden prepared to leave, the children were still hugging him.
"I wish my constituents liked me as much," Biden said. "God love it!"
"I can't pick you all up. I can't pick you all up," he said as he prepared to leave.
