"It’s a Democrat, I know! But it’s okay!"
This was Biden’s smiling attempt to soothe the toddler-age daughter of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) after he picked her up and she started crying. Cruz’s wife assured Biden that the girl cries for Republicans, too.
"Need any help on your pecs, man, give me a call."
Biden was obviously impressed by the physique of Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-S.C.) brother, a former football player who is now in the Army. “This guy looks like he still plays for South Carolina. Gamecocks!”
"No serious guys until you’re 30."
This was Biden’s advice to a granddaughter of Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). Among the other wisdom he dropped on the young woman: “You know what I tell my grandkids? Take care of your grandfather. That’s your most important job.”
