Hot damn.

As the Donald Trump campaign continues to poll poorly, Sen. Tim Kaine is a strong bet to become vice president. But he's already America's dad.

Kaine is square, earnest, affable, and plays the harmonica. Dropping by Stephen Colbert's Late Show Thursday night, Kaine was happy to embarrass his children and sit in with house band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human.

He was good! While Kaine lacked the panache of Bill Clinton playing the saxophone, he's a music nerd and natural bluesman. I bet he's the guy who watches bar bands with exuberance and asks if they have a CD for sale after the set. (Kaine is also a fan of Minnesota punk rockers the Replacements—he may very well have a sweet stash of hip vinyl.)

During his interview with Colbert afterward, he found time to blast Trump's immigration policies

To close out Thursday's Late Show, NPR wunderkinds Car Seat Headrest made their network television debut. Check out hard-rocking gem "Fill In the Blank" below.
