Barbara Walters To Joe Biden: Can I Kiss You?

Joe Biden got a very warm welcome from Barbara Walters on Tuesday.

The vice-president stopped by the daytime chatfest, and he brought along gifts for the co-hosts. "Is one allowed to kiss the vice-president to say thank you?" Barbara asked.

"I'd love that," Biden said, getting a smooch on the cheek. "This is the most comfortable couch I've ever been on," he joked.

Barbara wiped his face, joking, "I don't want you to go home to Jill with my lipstick."

Later, when asked whether he plans to run in 2016, Biden told Barbara, "If you stick around, I will announce my decision with you."
