(CNN) — One of the most memorable moments in the Democratic presidential primaries came last year when a debate moderator asked Joe Biden about his reputation for talking too much.

The moderator asked Biden, who was described by the Los Angeles Times as a “gaffe machine,” if he could reassure voters that he would have enough verbal discipline needed for the world stage.

“Yes,” Biden replied with a grin and a twinkle in his eyes.

The moderator, NBC anchorman Brian Williams, waited for Biden to elaborate, but a still-grinning Biden said nothing more. Nervous titters spread through the crowd until the audience erupted in laughter.

The Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama may be known for his eloquence. But Biden, his vice presidential running mate, can handle himself behind the podium as well. He is known for his ability to throw a verbal punch. Source Article
