Perhaps it was because of Vice President Biden's colorful interactions on swearing-in day on Capitol Hill, but a new We the People petition popped up on the White House website Friday, requesting that a recurring C-SPAN television show be made "featuring the daily activities and interactions of the Vice President with elected officials, foreign dignitaries and everyday American families."

The petition notes that the veep has a "demonstrated ability to bring people together, whether at the negotiating table or at the neighborhood diner," it continues. "Such a program would educate the American public about the duties and responsibilities of their Vice President, while providing a glimpse of the lighthearted side of politics even in the midst of contentious and divisive national debates."

In order for the petition to be acknowledged, 25,000 signatures are needed by Feb. 3. As of Friday afternoon, fewer than 200 had signed on.
