Sometimes the fights on the undercard are more fun to watch than the main event. Brawler Joe Biden and boxer Paul D. Ryan proved that Thursday night with the “Thrill in the Ville,” the vice presidential debate in Danville, Ky.
In a video discussion at 10:30 PDT Friday morning, we will talk about the highlights of the combative debate between Vice President Biden and Congressman Ryan. Joining me, Politics Now host Jim Rainey, will be Los Angeles Times business columnist Michael Hiltzik and Jon Fleischman, conservative blogger and creator of the Flash Report website.
Biden’s emotional performance Thursday night stood in stark contrast to President Obama’s tepid approach last week.
