Vice President Joe Biden did the next best thing after turning down a Conn. teen’s prom invite.

If nothing else, Vice President Joe Biden is a charming man with a handsome set of teeth. There’s no doubt he is the type of person who can let loose and have a good time, no matter the setting.

That’s what one Newington, Connecticut girl seemed to be thinking when she invited the Vice President to her high school prom.

So when prom season rolled around, and all the other high schoolers were asking annoying celebrities to come to their dance, Maselli was not so lucky. She received a rejection letter in the mail. But it’s not all gloom and doom for the 17-year-old. Biden’s letter was touching and considerate, and it came with a corsage for her to wear to the prom.

Sadly, the special night was not to be without Joe. The Wire report said Maselli was working with a “Biden or Bust” platform and decided not to attend the dance without the Veep.
