This is another case that was very much interpreted by those who look for something to criticize though.

Asked by "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace whether his daughter found the vice president creepy, Coons laughed and said that his daughter, Maggie, did not.
"He's known my kids their whole lives. Joe was just being thoughtful," Coons said. "I could hear him, he was leaning forward and whispering some encouragement to her about how when he was sworn in, and his own daughter Ashley was 13 she felt awkward and uncomfortable and he was encouraging her about how to get through the day with lots of cameras and lots of folks watching.
"He was being Joe," he said. "He was being thoughtful and he was being sweet."
It is so easy to misinterpret people's responses. I think any woman who was about to be kissed on the cheek by ANYBODY or had somebody starting to whisper in her ear, even her own husband or father, would likely lean away a bit until she knew who it was. I think any guy would too.
