Biden talks about jobs, economy



Biden"Ladies and gentlemen, it's more than an economic stress," Biden said in Tallahassee.

Biden talked about the "longest walk a parent can take" being the walk up the flight of stairs in to their child's bedroom to tell them they're going to have change schools because the parent has lost his or her job.
"Folks if we can help Wall Street, we should be able to help Monroe Street," said Sen. Biden, referring to one of Tallahassee's main commercial arteries.

Biden also knocked the McCain campaign for taking up "Karl Rove divisive campaign tactics."

"One of the things that has made me so sad. John McCain has gone way over the top….I know John McCain and he’s my friend and it’s disappointing to see him going this low," Biden said.
