Joe Biden Stencil

Politely yet assertively clarifies points of disagreement and misrepresentations - check.

Articulate, thoughtful and even comfortable speaker - check.

Takes notes when not speaking - check.

Doesn't pretend like the messes made by Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al are somehow irrelevant - check.

Presidential material with some emotional nuance - check.

Answers questions when asked - check.

Doesn't blame the media for misrepresenting them in a couple of bad interviews - check.

Reminds me of a Sarah Palin joke I never heard before:

Sarah Palin walks into a bar. The bartender says "Hi what can I get for you?" and Sarah replies "Let me tell you I may have only been at this five weeks but I know that John McCain is a maverick and as an outsider myself from the refuge state of Alaska I tell ya, doggonit, I'm going to have to get back to you about that!"
