    President Obama is a warm man; you can see in pictures how much people relate to him up close. But Joe's warmth is bigger, more exuberant. He can really bring a crowd right along with him, wherever he's going with a policy.

    His performance in his 2008 and 2012 debates was all the more impressive, to me, because both of his opponents made references (designed to rattle Biden, I believe) that brought everyone's mind to the car crash that killed Biden's wife and daughter and seriously injured his sons. If Biden were really the gaffe-prone, bumbling speaker he's sometimes portrayed in the media, he could not have handled those very public moments as gracefully as he did.
