Joe Biden's greatest YouTube moments
And since Joe has a reputation as a fun-loving guy, and as a notorious gaffe machine, we wanted to welcome him with a selection of his greatest YouTube moments.
For example, we can guarantee that Joe won't be calling his boss "the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy." Not today. Not ever again.
Joe and Barack managed to weather that little storm. Then he went on to declare his undying passion for the future president's wife. "I always liked Barack," he told a Pennsylvania rally, "but I love her."
Maybe he was just plain tired, or maybe he hit the beer cooler before taking to the podium to mispronounce John McCain's name over and over.
Don't forget that you cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts in Delaware unless you have a slight Indian accent.
He definitely had trouble with
four- three-letter words.
And the fun didn't stop once Barack and Joe won the White House. Here's the moment when he dropped the f-bomb before the boss signed health care reform into law.
And here's the moment he razzed the president over his teleprompter habit.
That Joe. What a kidder.
Bonus clip: Despite his reputation, he's absolutely confident that he has the self-discipline to represent the United States on the world stage.
