Girl asks Joe Biden to prom — and he delivers

SHARE Girl asks Joe Biden to prom — and he delivers

Really though, who wouldn’t want to go to prom with this guy?

For Talia Maselli, he would have been the perfect date.

“Joe Biden makes me laugh,” the Maselli told the Hartford Courant. “He just cracks me up.”

So, she did the obvious thing. She mailed him an invite to the Newington High School prom

I am inviting you so far in advance because I’m sure many 17-year-old girls send you prom invitations, and I had to beat them to it, Maselli said in her letter. I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America.

She warned that if Biden turned her down, she would have to turn to House Speaker John Boehner. Even if he does get emotional sometimes:

Biden did turn her down, and Maselli didn’t end up landing Boehner as her date.

But Biden, being a true gentleman, did come through, in a way.

On Thursday, the day before the prom, Maselli received a corsage of white roses, personally picked out by the Vice President, along with a handwritten note.

I am flattered, but my schedule will not permit me to be in Connecticut on Friday evening, the vice president said in the note. But I hope you will accept this corsage and enjoy your prom as much as I did mine.

Biden also invited her to the White House.
