All of Leslie Knope’s wishes and dreams are coming true. (And we’ll be damned if there’s a character on television that doesn’t deserve happiness more than her!) Over the past few months not only has Pawnee’s — and, okay, the world’s — greatest person been elected to City Council, but she became engaged to her adorably dorky campaign manager, sexy elf king Ben Wyatt. Now she’s getting a cherry on top of her whipped-cream happiness waffle: she’ll get to meet her other dream man, Vice President Joe Biden, who’s not having such a bad time himself lately.
Of course, while the meme-tastic Biden (who more recently flexed his comedy muscles on Late Show With David Letterman) and his upcoming guest stint is a particularly exciting one for Parks and Rec, he’s not the only politician to rub elbow’s with Pawnee’s elite. This year’s Season 5 premiere featured inspired cameos from Senators John McCain, Olympia Snowe, and Barbara Boxer. Everything’s coming up Knope!
