Vice President Joe Biden is campaigning in Wisconsin today and he stopped for lunch this afternoon at West Side Family Restaurant in Beloit. While there, as is his custom, Mr. Biden had an interesting exchange with one of the diners. According to the White House press pool report, which was written by Politico’s Jennifer Epstein, Mr. Biden sat down with an older man and it “sounded like the man was saying that he had met John F. Kennedy during a campaign stop five decades ago.”

“I’ll tell you what, man. I’m no John F. Kennedy,” Mr. Biden said.

Mr. Biden went on to pose for pictures with a woman who said, “My name is Gorgeous.”

“Hello, Gorgeous,” the vice president quipped.

After mingling with the patrons, Mr. Biden ate a cheeseburger with tomato and a side of fries accompanied by his son, Hunter, and his sister, Valerie Biden Owens. He washed it down with a Diet Pepsi.
