Why Joe Biden is *fun*, but probably a bad VP pick

Here's a YouTube of Biden at one of the debates, and it shows off his best qualities and hints at his worst:

He gets the great quip("he only says three things: a noun, verb, and 9/11"), gives a nuanced answer on national security in plain language (regarding the threat of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon vs. Pakistan becoming a failed state), and toes the line of the impolitic when making fun of his fellow debaters.
