It happened as Vice President Joe Biden was administering a ceremonial Senate oath during a mock swearing-in ceremony to Senator Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), on Jan. 5, 2011, in the Old Senate Chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Biden tried to entice three year old William Peter Wyden here asking him to hold his crib notes for the ceremony. But the boy didn't want to give it back. Biden then used his political skills on the young man by distracting him with a bait and switch using a mint as the bait. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
