There has been a lot of debate surrounding the experience each candidate has.  I have no opinions today.  Just a recap of each candidate’s resume recounting what they’ve been doing since high school.  You be the judge.  I think Biden might be the winner in national leadership experience (I lied about not having an opinion) but that is just what the numbers appear to say to me.
