As if he weren't perfect already!
That's because while both Democrats will go down in history for their progressive politics, only one of them has officiated a same-sex wedding!
Gay marriage has been legal in America for just over a year now, so Joe decided to celebrate that fact on Monday by performing a ceremony for White House staffers Joe Mahshie and Brian Mosteller!
Not only was this the Vice President's first go at officiating any type of wedding — he got a special one-time license just for the happy couple — but he actually let them tie the knot in his own home at the Naval Observatory.
Following the immediate family-only service, Joe congratulated the newlyweds on Twitter, saying:
But this guest spot isn't just for fun, as the episode will focus on the fight to end violence against women. According to a press release from the White House:
"[T]he Vice President will tape an appearance on [the series] on the rape kit backlog and efforts to end violence against women."
The federal government estimated that hundreds of thousands of rape kits — which are instrumental in solving and preventing sexual assault crimes — sit untested in storage facilities across the country.
This is known as the rape kit backlog, which represents a lost opportunity to bring justice to a survivor of sexual violence.
Biden has been a longtime advocate for stopping violence against women, and we think it's great he's shedding light on the government shortcomings — all while engaging in some intense dialogue with Mariska Hargitay.
Are YOU excited for the VP's SVU debut?

You can always count on Joe Biden to bring the heat!
At the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, the Vice President took the stage to support the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton!
In doing so, he absolutely SLAMMED her opponent Donald Trump for his lack of empathy, his ignorance about the middle class, and his horrible national security plan.
He even tears apart his famous line from The Apprentice:
"How can there be pleasure in saying, 'You're fired."'
Biden's passionate speech was truly one of the highlights from this year's DNC. To see a clip, ch-ch-check it out (above)!
He's with her!
While Donald Trump made the questionable decision to pick extra-hateful Indiana Governor Mike Pence at the Republican National Convention earlier this week, Hillary Clinton was determined to to select the best running mate possible.
And it looks like she did just that… because it was announced on Friday that Tim Kaine will officially be her Vice Presidential Nominee!
That's right — the man who will hopefully be replacing Joe Biden next January is none other than Mr. Kaine.
Hillary made the inspired choice just a day after the RNC came to a controversial close… which means the Democratic National Convention next week is going to be even more fun to watch!
What do U think of the Clinton/Kaine ticket??

Such a fitting tribute…
On Saturday June 25, VH1 and Logo will air its third annual Trailblazer Honors, the largest televised LGBT Pride event.
In the program, Vice President Joe Biden addresses the crowd with a message honoring the Orlando shooting victims, and to also denounce North Carolina's anti-transgender laws.
"Hi everyone. This is Joe Biden and I wish I could be there with you in person to honor some truly inspiring trailblazers. Each of you gives meaning to Harvey Milk's words, 'Hope never remains silent.' And we need you. We need all of you. Because as we celebrate a year of equality in marriage, draconian state laws deny transgender Americans basic civil rights. And in nearly 70 countries, it's a crime. It's a crime to be who you are. And because the freedom to live freely means being free from bullying, free from harassment, and free from violence. You know, our hearts are still heavy for Orlando, but you're showing tonight that we are Orlando. We're all Americans. Unbowed. Unrelenting. We endure. We overcome. We're hopeful and we will not be silent."'
The event will also spotlight LGBT pioneers Billie Jean King, Harvey Fierstein, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sylvia Rivera. Stage presenters include Emma Stone, Macklemore, Lance Bass, Chloe Grace Moretz, Janet Mock, Wilson Cruz and Candis Cayne.
It airs at 8pm ET/PT.
