Picture of the Week

This week's picture of the week pulls back the curtain as we go behind the scenes as Vice President Biden became a key power player in helping to close the deal on raising the nation's debt ceiling.  The photo was taken by Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy (D) as Biden sought to calm Democrat's concerns about the deal in a closed door caucus meeting.  Senator Leahy's was the only camera allowed in the closed door meeting.
