Joe Biden spoke yesterday at a fundraiser in Delaware for Gabrielle Giffords.

Giffords’ district supported John McCain over Obama in the last election and previously supported George W. twice. Biden said that if Dems can retain the seats, “all the hidden Republicans that don’t have the courage to vote the way they want to vote because of pressure from the party … it will break the dam and you will see bipartisanship.”
