* WhatAnIdiot: During a live interview on national television discussing the administration's attempts to ban automatic rifles, he committed one of his more notorious gaffes when he said that a woman facing a home invasion should simply [[ArtisticLicenseGunSafety fire both barrels of a double-barrel shotgun out the door]] to scare away the intruder(s). Never mind the fact that this method would be ''very'' tactically unsound ''and'' violates ''all'' the rules of firearm safety, it also constitutes Reckless Discharge of a Firearm, ''which is a felony in all 50 states.'' Needless to say, the national ban effort failed miserably.

* RailEnthusiast: A vocal supporter of Amtrak, he regularly commuted by train from his home in Delaware to Washington during his time in the Senate. Amtrak responded by naming the Wilmington train station after him and would even delay departures by several minutes just so that Biden could make it home.

* GeniusDitz: A lot like the former President GeorgeWBush in this regard. Both men have top-notch education and are pretty book-smart...nevertheless, they both seem to suffer from an occasional OpenMouthInsertFoot syndrome.

* MagnumOpus: InvokedTrope. The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violence_Against_Women_Act Violence Against Women Act of 1994]] was in his words "...the single most significant legislation that Iíve crafted during my 35-year tenure in the Senate."

* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Robinette is certainly no Hussein, but nonetheless not a middle name most guys would be proud of.

* LongRunners: He technically has more seniority than current President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy, and thus if he weren't already VP after UsefulNotes/DanielInouye died, ''he'' would be the President Pro Tem.

* OpenMouthInsertFoot: When you ask a wheelchair-bound veteran to "Stand up and take a bow", you deserve the reputation for this.

* DarkHorseVictory: His first Senate election in 1972: The incumbent Senator [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Caleb_Boggs J. Caleb Boggs]] was considering retiring, and the only two Republicans running were tearing each other apart in the primary. RichardNixon stepped in and convinced Boggs to run again, and no one other than Biden tried running against him. His zero dollar campaign was run primarily by his sister Valerie. He trailed Boggs as far as 30%, but come election day he won by 50.5% to Boggs 49.1%, by only 3162 votes.
