    If President Obama was reelected and something happened to him would you feel comfortable with Joseph Biden as President?

      No of course not.
      But he'd probably be better than Hillary or Bill Clinton.  'Cause surely he learned something about right and wrong as a child.   Back then, parents usually did teach kids the basics; so there might be some hope, if the spell of the great instigator Obama was broken....
      But then, who knows?  Patterns are hard for people to break.  Biden's a follower, not leadership material anymore than Obama is.
      It's really scary that he could be a "heartbeat away" from the Presidency.  But no scarier than what's already in there!
      Makes people's fear of Sarah Palin being in that position during the McCain/Palin campaign even sillier now than it was then.   They passed over that team, and look what we've had for the last few years.

        Anyone with half a brain would pass up McCain/Palin.

    He's smarter than Dan Quayle.

      THAT is not saying much.

      But Dan Quayle is not in line of succession for the presidency, but Biden could in a heartbeat be the president.

          Makes me question Obamas intelligence, he picked the buffoon. And yes, he is dumber than Bush and a bag of hammers.

    I find Biden very likable and funny, but I don't want him to be in charge of the nation.

    Sure, he's an experienced politician and no dumber than Bush II.

      What is your basis on that statement?
      That means you wouldn't have a problem with him being president?

    Yeah, the guy's a total slouch. Never done anything in his career.
    Totally unqualified on either foreign relations or domestic policy to fill Obama's shoes.

    Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., graduated from the University of Delaware and Syracuse Law School and served on the New Castle County Council. Then, at age 29, he became one of the youngest people ever elected to the United States Senate.

    As a Senator from Delaware for 36 years, Senator Biden established himself as a leader on some of our nation's most important domestic and international challenges.
    As Chairman or Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee for 17 years, then-Senator Biden was widely recognized for his work on criminal justice issues including the landmark 1994 Crime Bill and the Violence Against Women Act.
    As Chairman or Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee since 1997, then-Senator Biden played a pivotal role in shaping U.S. foreign policy. He has been at the forefront of issues and legislation related to terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, post-Cold War Europe, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia.

    As Veep, Biden was tasked with implementing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, helping to rebuild our economy and lay the foundation for a sustainable economic future.
    As part of his continued efforts to raise the living standards of middle class Americans across the country, Vice President Biden has also focused on the issues of college affordability and American manufacturing growth, key priorities of the Administration.

    Vice President Biden continues to draw on his foreign policy experience, advising the President on a multitude of international issues.
    He helped secure the Senate’s approval of the New START nuclear arms reduction treaty with Russia, together with significant new funding to maintain our nuclear laboratories. 
    He played a lead role in ending the war in Iraq responsibly, traveling to the country eight times since being elected – most recently in December 2011 to mark the formal end of the war.

    In addition, Vice President Biden has supported the Administration’s effort to reestablish leadership in the Asia Pacific,  traveling to China, Japan, and Mongolia in August 2011 and completing an exchange of visits with China’s Vice President in February 2012, that country’s presumptive next leader. 
    He has represented our country in every region of the world, advancing our unprecedented support for Israel’s security, securing approval in Europe for the Administration’s more effective approach to missile defense, working with Latin American leaders to combat drug trafficking and international crime and building relations with key leaders in Africa. 
    He has traveled to more than two dozen countries, including Germany, Belgium, Chile, Costa Rica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, Lebanon, Georgia, Ukraine, Iraq, Poland, Romania, the Czech Republic, Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Jordan, Spain, Egypt, Kenya, South Africa, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Finland, Russia, Moldova, Italy, China, Mongolia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Greece, Mexico and Honduras.
