Vice President Joe Biden--who once called Paul Ryan "fine" and "handsome" before knocking his economic policies--telephoned Mitt Romney's newly minted running mate on Saturday to "welcome him to the race," the Obama campaign said in a statement.
"Vice President Biden reached out to Congressman Ryan earlier today to congratulate him on his selection and welcome him to the race," it said. "The Vice President urged Congressman Ryan to enjoy the day with his family, and said he looked forward to engaging him on the clear choice voters face this November."
