Vice President Biden's Twitter feed
Hargitay joins fellow NBC star Amy Poehler in her love of the vice president. Poehler got Biden to appear on her show "Parks & Recreation," where her character called him "precious cargo." Hargitay called Biden "my hero" for his work on the original Violence Against Women Act.
"I didn't sign up for the day. I'm sort of in it for the long haul," she said of her work.
Hargitay, who has made multiple trips to the nation's Capitol to speak about victims' rights and lobby for the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, sounded like a political candidate as she spoke passionately about her work, reeled off statistics of sex crimes and offered suggestions on how to improve prosecution rates.
"That's a good one," she laughed when asked about it.
