Biden negotiates w/ child to get script back
WASHINGTON (KABC) -- Vice President Joe Biden's keen negotiating skills paid off for him during Wednesday's congressional swearing-in ceremony.
He was up against the precocious 3-year-old son of Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden who had snatched his speech script.
"I think he wants to speak," Biden said jokingly when the boy took the papers. When the parents tried to take the papers back, the boy says, "no, no, no," and squirms away.
So Biden offers the boy a trade.
"Hey, here's the deal. You see this? If you can tell me which hand it's in, you can have it," Biden said.
The vice president was only distracting little William, taking the opportunity to pull the old bait-and-switch. In exchange for the script, William received a mint.
