Asleep on the Job: What Was VP Biden Doing During Obama's Debt Speech?

MANDEL NGAN/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Vice President Biden chose an inopportune time for either a nap or some deep reflection Wednesday.

As President Obama weighed in on one of the most important issues of the day, outlining his plan to deal with deficit reduction and attack the national debt, at least one audience member did not appear to be fully engaged.

Biden, at one point, could be seen apparently nodding off -- or at least deep in thought. The bug was catching, too. A woman directly behind Biden appeared to close her eyes, too.
