Biden: ‘I’m a good vice-president’

In Muscatine, Iowa, Vice President Joe Biden mused on his past visits to Iowa and offered this self-assessment: 

“Well you know what, on the way on the plane, to show you how effective I am, my political guy said I’m glad we’ve got your schedule for just the last time around when I was trying to get the nomination,” he said. “I spent 120 days in Iowa. You saw how effective I am. You know what I mean? But I’m a good vice president.”

A diner at the Good Earth Restaurant responded, "You haven’t done too bad.”
