Vice presidential debates have brought us memorable characters (Joe Six-Pack), biting put-downs (“Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy“), and satire-worthy speeches (“Who am I? Why am I here?”).
On Thursday night, Vice President Joe Biden and Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan will face off in the newest iteration of the VP debates. Will Biden’s bombastic goofiness produce a memorable gaffe? Will Ryan’s proclivity for white lies lead to a good joke? Will the generational gap between the candidates create some witty repartee?
Until we find out on Thursday, check out out some of the best VP debate moments from the past few decades.
