Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Joe Biden paces along the crowd barriers during his town hall meeting at the Activity Recreation Center on Tuesday. Audience members in the front rows waited for two hours before Biden took the stage before the standing-room-only crowd and spoke about his own political career, the economy, the war in Iraq, education, John McCain and Barack Obama's Campaign for Change.
