Clown prince …

… Joseph Epstein: The Comic Stylings of Joe Biden - (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… being a fun guy is not the top of everyone's list of qualifications for being vice president of the United States. A touch more gravitas would seem to be required for the job, but one can't ask for everything, comic relief and gravitas, too. Someone with a deeper knowledge of American history than mine might be able to make a convincing list of the nation's great vice presidents, though my guess is that the list would not be a lengthy one.
I have written about my favorite Vice-President here.
