When I made this comment, my son observed that this was "Schrodinger's Coolness," in that he is simultaneously cool and not cool, much like the famously indeterminate cat.
Case in point are reports that Biden made a friendship bracelet for Barack Obama for his 55th birthday:
Vice President Biden on Thursday celebrated President Obama's 55th birthday with a touching note on Twitter.I'm gonna miss him when Bond villain wannabe Mike Pence takes the seat.
Happy 55th, Barack! A brother to me, a best friend forever. pic.twitter.com/uNsxouTKOO— Vice President Biden (@VP) August 4, 2016
Considering the explosion of Biden memes on Facebook, I do not think that I am alone in this.
