Only one month in of­fice and Vice Pres­i­dent Joseph R. Bi­den Jr. has al­ready been handed more re­spon­si­bil­ity than ar­guably any vice pres­i­dent in re­cent mem­ory — tapped by Pres­i­dent Obama on Feb. 23 to be stew­ard (if not sub­se­quent scape­goat) of the mas­sive, nearly $1 tril­lion eco­nomic-stim­u­lus pack­age.

Who will ever for­get when asked to name a con­tri­bu­tion by Vice Pres­i­dent Richard Nixon to his ad­min­is­tra­tion, Pres­i­dent Dwight D. Eisen­hower re­sponded, “If you give me a week, I might think of one.”
