Friday October 12, 2012 Happening Now

Pow. That was quite a debate last night! Vice President Biden versus Congressman Paul Ryan. Seems like who won the debate depends on who you ask with both sides claiming victory today. The two met at their first and only debate and hit topics from taxes to jobs to the economy to foreign policy.

Joe Biden seemed determined to make up for the President's poor performance last week at his first debate. Biden was aggressive and his facial expressions getting a lot of attention today. But Biden also seemed to have Mister Ryan on the ropes at some points during the debate. Lots of analysis today.
