Biden Holds Up A Binder On The Stump

Vice President Joe Biden introduced a new prop into his stump speech on Friday: A binder.

Mocking Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women” remark at a campaign rally in Fort Pierce, Florida, Biden held up a black binder in the air as an example of the Republican candidate’s solution to gender-based pay discrimination.

Debating President Obama for the second time on Tuesday, Romney recounted how he called upon the compliation of binders of prospective female appointees for his previous Massachussets administration a decade ago.
