Vice President Joe Biden summed up the vice presidency in a single word Thursday night while taking a question from the Harvard College student body vice president during an event in Cambridge, Mass.

“Isn’t it a bitch, I mean … that vice president thing?” Biden joked, as the audience reportedly erupted with laughter. ”I’m joking. I’m joking. I’m joking. The best decision I ever made.”

Biden's quip came at an event with students at the Harvard Institute of Politics, where he spoke about foreign policy and a range of other issues before taking questions from the audience.
