"Ain't that a b****?" Biden replied. "I mean … excuse me, the vice president thing?" He quickly added: "I'm joking, I'm joking. Best decision I ever made." His remarks were met with laughter.

Biden is no stranger to gaffes. During a televised event in the 2008 presidential campaign he asked Missouri State Senator Chuck Graham to "stand up Chuck, let 'em see you," forgetting that Graham was a wheelchair user. And when Barack Obama signed his heath care reforms into law in 2010 Biden was caught on the microphone telling the president that "this is a f***ing big deal."
