The chief function of a Vice President

is making the President look good and by that measure Joe Biden is one of the best vice presidents who ever lived.
The rule of thumb is that the more incompetent the man at the top is, the more of a buffoon the man just below him needs to be to make him look good. And again Biden does this job brilliantly. --Sultan Knish: The Scarecrow of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

Your Say

"Biden is a joke because the Democratic Party is a joke. He represents what the left sees as the flaws of the Democratic Party and liberalism, the old white males who wanted slow reforms and gradual change instead of abrupt revolution. "

Knish is brilliant.
