Biden checks watch to see how much time remains in debate

When it came time to how much time remained in the last presidential debate, former Vice President Joe Biden’s approach was trust, but verify.

When moderator Kristen Welker of NBC told the candidates Thursday night “we're running out of time,” Biden took a long look at his wrist watch to confirm that only about 10 minutes remained in the debate.

The visual was reminiscent of a moment in the 1992 town hall debate between Bill Clinton, Ross Perot and George H.W. Bush, when Bush checked his watch while Clinton answered a question from an audience member.

Bush was criticized at the time for peeking at his watch, with observers saying he appeared bored with the questions raised by voters.


Biden checking his watch and telling everyone he wants to end the oil industry were the biggest blunders in years.
