Watch Veep's Season 2 Trailer (VIDEO)

The position of vice president is technically the second-most-powerful job in the world, but as long as the president is still alive and well, the veep may as well be a prop in the president's photo opportunities. That's the recurring theme of HBO's Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Vice President Selina Meyer.

Though its first season was relatively quiet, Veep was one of the best comedies to debut last year, and Season 2 is scheduled to premiere April 14. To celebrate, HBO has released the promo below to show just how much respect the VP gets in the White House.

Ha, you gotta love Timothy Simons as Jonah, the brown-nosing White House liaison; Gary (Tony Hale) mad-dogging the Secret Service agent; and Mike (Matt Walsh) stuffing his face with pastries.

    I must have watched S1 of Veep about 10 times since it finished airing, so happy it's coming back. It's one of the best comedies and JLD is just wonderful.

    I'm excited to see season 2..I have a really good friend who is slated to play anna klumsky's mom so this should be fun I can't wait

    I *love* this TV show. The type of humour is not for everyone, but it works great for me. Veep is easily one of the most underwatched shows on TV.

    Is it just me, or does Anna Chlumsky look totally different in her close-ups?

    It didn't take long to warm up to the first season, and now I'm looking forward to seeing all these goofy characters again. I still miss How to Make It in America and Bored to Death, though...

    How to make it in America was great still mad about it getting the axe.

    Only 16 half-hours aired. Can you believe that? HBO treated it worse than a network show.
