Unlikely,but if it should work out that we have a Romney/Biden Presidency. . . .

  1. That could be a good thing.

    5 vote(s)
    71.4%
  2. That would be very bad.

    2 vote(s)
    28.6%
  3. That would end the republic as we know it.

    0 vote(s)
    0.0%

    Assuming that the solidly red states will stay red and the solidly blue states will stay blue, and focusing on the toss up battleground states:

    It is conceivable that if the vote goes a certain way, Romney and Obama could tie with 269 electoral college votes each.

    If that should happen, the House will choose the President. The Senate will choose the Vice President.

    We could see a Romney/Biden Presidency.

    But that WOULD also require a 50/50 split of GOP Senators and Dim/Socialist Senators.

    Hopefully, the Senate will be firmly in GOP hands. And that would translate into NO tie breaker vote from Plugs!

    yeah I would love that actually, just to see democrats RAGE with anger as Boehner casts the deciding vote for President and then watching Joe be VP would be hilarious....he cant do much, which is good, but he would be very very entertaining

    It is not mathematically impossible that the GOP will take back the Senate but I'm not holding my breath that it will happen. So of course the possibility posed in the OP assumes the Senate will retain a Democratic majority.

    However, if the Senate did choose Biden, he may be a goofball and has put his personal values on the back seat in order to be a good team player, I believe he does love his country and, when the chips are down, will usually do the right thing. I think Romney can probably work with anybody though he would be bitterly disappointed in not having the bright, competent, knowledgeable Ryan at his side.

    Could Biden work with anybody?
