134. Biden (Unleashed)
Yes...I think Biden would have been an excellent President. His experience and track record (or most of it) demonstrates that he has carried the Democratic banner in good faith. In addition, I honestly don't think that Biden would have put up with any crap from the right. He has the chops and the "raw" skills to frame the argument in such a way that it would be hard for anyone (regardless of party) to deny the obvious. It is clear from watching him as VP that he has been somewhat muzzled. The so-called "gaff machine" mantra is undeserved. If anything, he speaks with such honesty (and sometimes without thinking, I'll admit) that it can be seen by his detractors as less than diplomatic. Most importantly, Biden understands how Washington works. His experience is nearly unmatched. My call before the election was for Biden to be President and Obama to be VP. But that's another thread.
