The Vice Presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan is Thursday night, and PEOPLE got the jump on things by asking Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan from Wisconsin to go toe-to-toe on ... tunes.
And they proved about as far apart on music as they are on, well, Medicare.

Vice President Joe Biden may have sparked the latest war of words in the presidential campaign, but he'll get no talking-to from the boss on this one. Just a small sigh – and a vote of confidence.
PEOPLE sat down with President Obama one day after Biden's remark to voters in Virginia on Tuesday – that GOP running mates Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan are "going to put y'all back in chains" – and asked the President if he'd spoken to Biden about the controversial comment.
"Joe Biden has been an outstanding vice president. He is passionate about what's happening in middle-class families," he said. "So I will be talking to him a whole lot about the campaign generally."
Biden's comment sparked Romney to call the Obama campaign one of "division and hate and anger." But Obama, speaking to PEOPLE in Dubuque, Iowa, seemed unrattled by the controversy. He said Biden's words needed to be considered in context; that he was only saying "you, consumers, the American people, will be a lot worse off if we repeal these [Wall Street reform] laws as the other side is suggesting."

However tough and tight the race against President Obama gets this fall, Janna Ryan predicts that her husband Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney can count on one thing: fun.

The two candidates, Mrs. Ryan and Romney's wife, Ann, laughed easily aboard their campaign bus between stops in North Carolina.

Here's what you need to know about Romney's pick:
