17-year-old Talia Maselli was not planning to attend her senior prom, but last fall sent a letter to the Vice President's office saying she would if the popular politico would be her date.
"I am inviting you so far in advance because I'm sure many 17-year-old girls send you prom invitations, and I had to beat them to it," Maselli wrote. "I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America."
Months later, she was shocked to receive a handwritten note and corsage from Vice President Biden.
"I am flattered, but my schedule will not permit me to be in Connecticut on Friday evening," Biden's note read. "But I hope you will accept this corsage and enjoy your prom as much as I did mine."
Biden went on to invite Maselli to the White House, a trip that will probably occur July.
"I was never really looking forward to going to prom," Maselli told the Hartford Courant. "I'm looking forward to going to Washington D.C."
