The White House helped foster one of the most beautiful bromances in political history. Indeed, former president Barack Obama and former vice president Joe Biden formed a relationship based on more than political alliances. Their friendship has endured through some rather dark hours, and it thrives on mutual trust, respect, laughter, and kindness.
It's hard to find a picture of Obama and Biden in which they're not having a good time, but their affection wasn't always apparent. The story of their fabled bromance is as amazing as the men themselves, from their less-than-stellar first meeting to their greatest shared triumphs. These men couldn't help but be best pals and confidants, and their trials only brought them closer together.
