RYAN BIDEN DEBATE
High school student in Washington

Political activist and New York attorney

Joe sat in the back of the room and laughed. He was a holy fool and a brilliant bully. If he didn't deliver a knock-out, he certainly blocked the pilgrim's progress. He set the stage for the return of the hero next week.
