In this Sept. 8, 2012, photo, Vice President Joe Biden pets a golden retriever puppy named Karma held by her owner Rod Siddons outside a Obama campaign office in Chilicothe, Ohio. Biden buddied up with bikers, posed for countless pictures at a pizza place and downed an ice cream cone at a Dairy Queen over the weekend as he toured Ohio. Biden loves Ohio. The only question now is whether Ohio loves him _ and President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
