Jason Sudeikis, a.k.a. Vice President Joe Biden and presidential contender Mitt Romney, may be a master impressionist on Saturday Night Live, but the comedian is more concerned with showing the humanity in the politicians he plays than simply imitating their quirks.

Sudeikis stopped by The Daily Show last night and discussed the fine art of playing politicians. “You sort of get to see the human side of these people who you don’t normally get to see,” he said, citing a skit from last season in which he played Biden, who was jealous that President Barack Obama got all the credit for supporting gay marriage only after the vice-president voiced his stance, and a skit from last week’s episode in which he played Romney, who only had his family to turn to after losing the election. “The guy’s more human than we ever give him credit for,” he said about Romney.
