Biden: Don't Call Me 'Goofy Uncle Joe'

Joe Biden doesn't want to go down in history as "Goofy Uncle Joe." Unfortunately, that's not up to him.

 During one of his daily commutes on an Amtrak train, Vice President Biden sat down with CNBC's John Harwood and talked about his career and the politics of the future. One interesting question popped up. Here's the transcript from NBC News:

HARWOOD: So George H.W. Bush was weak, Dan Quayle was dumb, Al Gore was wooden, Dick Cheney was Darth Vader. Do you feel sympathy for those guys, having done this for seven years? And are you comfortable with Goofy Uncle Joe?
BIDEN: No, I'm not comfortable with Goofy Uncle Joe. But one of the things that's important to know — and one of the reasons why, when I first got asked about this job I said no — is there is no inherent power in being vice president.
Biden added that he told President Obama that in his secondary role, he required only to be "the last guy in the room."
