President Barack Obama says he "could not be prouder" of Vice President Joe Biden's debate performance. Via the pool report:
As the president descended the stairs of Air Force One, your poolers en masse hollered to him to give his assessment of Biden's performance in the debate. The president came over to where your poolers were standing.
"I'm going to make a special point of saying that I thought Joe Biden was terrific tonight. I could not be prouder of him. I thought he made a very strong case. I really think that his passion for making sure that the economy grows for the middle class came through. So I'm very proud of him."
Asked if he called him after the debate ended, Mr. Obama replied with a smile, "Yes, I just talked to him."
