Biden Makes a Campaign Stop in Virginia

September 19, 2008

(AP) - Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says part of the solution to the country's financial crisis is "ending the cowboy mentality of the Bush-McCain era."

At a rally Friday in Sterling, Va., that drew roughly 1,000 people, Biden said McCain is against government regulation of the financial sector and helped foster a culture that led to the meltdown on Wall Street and in the banking industry.

Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski introduced Biden at the rally, which was focused on women's issues. She referred to the Republican vice presidential nominee, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, as "George Bush in earrings."
