WASHINGTON (CNN) - Joe Biden returned to his old stomping grounds Wednesday wearing three hats: vice president, historian, and comedian.
Biden delivered the keynote address at the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee's Green Jobs Summit.
The vice president needled his former colleagues. "I just want to remind you guys I hope you remember me. I used to work here. So easily how they forget," he said.
Biden served in the Senate for 36 years before being elected vice president.
The summit was held in the caucus room of the Russell Senate office building, which inspired Biden to discuss the room's history.
"It's good to be home in this room. This is - business folks and labor leaders probably know - but this is one of the most historic rooms in the United States Senate," said Biden.
"John Kennedy announced his run for the presidency here. This was the room in which the Bork hearing took place. And this is the room in which the Clarence Thomas hearing took place. Over which I presided on both of them and I am so glad to be here not talking about the Supreme Court. Umm... laugh a little bit, guys. Come on - you're a stiff audience here, man."
–CNN's Virginia Nicolaidis contributed to this report.
THE COUNTRY WOULD PROBABLY BE BETTER OFF, IF HE WAS STILL THERE! 36 years, collecting checks! By-the-way where is Delaware located?
If you're going to judge, check your spelling, sir.
"Quite?" Try "quiet, gt."
Next to Sarah Palin, EVERYBODY is an Einstein.
Is "Where is Delaware" a serious question...?

Why is it that — whenever I see or hear Biden — I think of Charlie McCarthy, the ventriloquist dummy!
Answer -because you are one of Rush's ditto heads
Biden Your An Idiot......You and the BrownClown are destroying our country
He's just so-oo cute. You wanna him home like a puppy and put a ribbon around his neck. Be sure to put down some newspaper!
@william from cali.Delaware is in the same place your gerbel is hiding.
Biden: Remember me? I used to Work here
Cheney: Remember me? I used to Torture here
Bush: Remember me? I uses to Mislead here about WMDs of Iraq
Biden has already eclipsed Humphrey, Gore and Mondale as the most pathetic VP in our history...way to go, Joe!
I don't think Joe Biden has ever worked ANYWHERE!
Republican Party consists of Professional Hunters.
1. Cheney the Quail Hunter.
2. Palin the Helicopter Wolf Hunter.
You used to be there. Nobody said you ever did any work.
I would rather have Larry, Moe, or Curly as VP than this clown!
So, he's addressing a group of Senators and saying, "Remember me? I used to work here!" Huh? Did he forget that the Vice President of the United States is the President of the Senate? He didn't exactly leave now, did he?
Granted, I realize it's mostly a figurehead position and all, but seriously,...
Still, he's quite a bit better than Sarah Palin! ;-)
Clinton: remember me? I used to cheat on my wife and then lie about it here. Man, we could do this all night.
Ted Kennedy: remember me? I used to run my car into the ocean to hide my affairs.
