Vice President Joe Biden and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star Mariska Hargitay are teaming up October 19 on the USA Network, a sister station of msnbc. The two will appear together in public service announcements about domestic violence awareness during a 14-hour marathon of “SVU” episodes. Our colleagues at the TODAY Show have even more details.

But that’s not the only place you’ll find the Vice President these days.  Recently, he met with the Nuns on a Bus on their get-out-the-vote tour.  Sister Simone Campbell, the leader of the Nuns on the Bus tour, told us why involvement from the Vice President and other politicians is important.
