No matter what happens on this mostly politically-oriented version of Celebrity Jeopardy, it’s unlikely any of the contestants will break Wolf Blitzer’s record.

But you never know what’s going to happen, because Joe Biden has been consulted about the clues:

Jeopardy host Alex Trebek visited the White House on Thursday and took an impromptu tour of the West Wing.

He met press secretary Jay Carney, posed behind the podium in the press briefing room and signed the infamous pool wall in the West Wing basement.

Trebek was at the White House to shoot some B roll and photos for a Power Players tournament the show is filming on Friday and Saturday at Constitution Hall in D.C.

He said he spent some time on Wednesday with Vice President Joe Biden talking about what questions to ask.

Among the categories Biden suggested that might end up on the cutting room floor: “Hair transplant doctors to avoid” and “Stupid things VP’s said prior to 2009.”

“Joepourri” and “When the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor” will make the cut.
