Those of us covering the campaign should be happy; Biden is anything but boring. There's also something likable about the guy. Nobody wants this more than him, so he is probably the happiest man in the world right now.
I just can't help but believe that Biden will commit some sort of major gaffe between now and election day...
Another thing to consider is that Biden is that, though Biden is from Delaware, he was born in Scranton and is considered "the 3rd Pennsylvania senator" ... Does this increase the odds that McCain will pick Tom Ridge or Mitt Romney, to counter?
