He'd be a ok VP for the simple fact that he's his own person, not a yes-man politician. He'd tell Barack, "Hey, that's a shitty idea." Maybe not in those words, but with that same fervor. You won't hear him voice his plans at rallies since he's the battleaxe squelching rumors and citing McCain's faults. I think you'll get a better feel for him after the VP Debate on Oct 2.
