    The sole Biden vote? Disneydude.

    Seriously, was there ever a doubt?

    Oh, cut the crap. If you're just so liberal that you can't look objectively about a specific trait, then just say so. This isn't about ethos, perceived morality, or who you like/believe in. You're just trying to skirt around, meander, and red herring yourself to a pick based on your political belief.

    So seriously, shut up with the "moral understanding" and "ethically questionable" babble. The thread is not about jargon. If you're going to have a partisan vote, at least have the guts to say so. Otherwise you just look like a liberal patsy.

    I did not respond because of media stereotypes. If you look at Cheney you will find that he was leading the charge for our involvement in Iran. My issue is his inability to state his true intentions which had nothing to do with weapons of mass destruction. Read his publications prior to be VP and you will find that he, along with several others within the administration, wrote that it was important to invade Iraq. Futher, when you look at the involvement of his oil company in Iraq, with no competitive bid, you cannot believe that it did not have undertones of corruption. Secondly, though I do question Biden inability to speak before thinking, I question Cheney's inability to show honest concern and understanding of everyday Americans. And that is also a form of intelligence which Biden scores high. You may not like my use of the language but you cannot deny the are varying types of intelligence.

    Re: Which VP is more intelligent?

    "Emotional intelligence" is just a makeshift phrase made by ivory tower psychologists. You can try and differentiate all you want; it changes nothing. Is Cheney a moral man? No, probably not. Is he a shrewd businessman? Without question. Is Biden an amicable fellow? Sure. Is he demonstrably intelligent? Far from.

    You're still looking at this microcosmically based on who you "like". This isn't about who is less corrupt or who appeals to people better. It's about a rather object raw measure.

    Sometimes I think it may be better to have the "comic relief" than the guy who is morally bankrupt (and whom we are finding out did a lot of underhanded, dirty, borderline illegal things while in office).

    But having said that...since the question was intelligence. Ill go with Cheney. He may be a lot of things, but you have to be intelligent to pull off some of the things he did while in office.

    It's funny you mention this, since the first time I heard of "emotional intelligence" applied to politicians was a documentary on the Presidents who applied it to George W. Bush.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Re: Which VP is more intelligent?

    Probably because way too many people ignored the simple fact that he had two degrees from Ivy League schools.

    It's a moot point. He was elected because he was an everyman. Same as Clinton. However, it's plain to see that the disparity in intelligence between these two presidents is massive.

    But hey, Bush was a swell enough guy. I think people hear the accent and assume lots of things. Can't say I entirely blame them either.

    32 to 6 against Biden. No more Palin is sooo stupid jokes allowed.

    I think on Who's Smarter than a 5th Grader, Palin would kick Biden's ass.

    Oh I don't know about that. That woman is a whopping moron.

    If she wasn't hot as hell, she would be a non-factor in American politics today.

    Dont really like Cheney, but Biden is especially dumb because he thinks hes a genius.
    The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
