How do I get with my best friend's girl?

After celebrating the girl's birthday last night, it's clear that we've got some chemistry going on. The boyfriend is kind of a jerk, who spouts inconsiderate comments, doesn't treat the girl even on her birthday, and has no idea of chivalry. Sometimes, when I go out with the guy in question, i'm worried that he'll offend someone and get us both into a fight.
On the other hand, the girl appreciates my compliments and says things to the boyfriend like "You never say those things to me!"
He's the kind of person who has no real plans for his life and makes spontaneous ambitions for law school. Both don't have jobs. I've got a job and could support the girl until she finds a job of her own. He's got a sub 3.0 G.P.A and is somewhat of an alcoholic. I'm worried that his influence is making the girl a bit of an alcoholic as well.
I'm torn. The friend is a good friend, but not a friend I would probably want to be around for life. The girl is probably the only person who I've had a sustainable connection with. Both of them joke around by saying that I'm contending for best man, but the guy said that he's waiting to propose in graduate school (I assume in 2011?).
My plan so far is to be available and wait it out. What would the AskMeFi community suggest?
