(CNN) - Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware came out swinging for speaking time in Thursday night's Democratic debate. His first punch went straight to the top three presidential contenders: Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois and former Sen. John Edwards of South Carolina.
"This is not about experience, it's not about change. It's about action," Biden said. "Who among us is going to be able on day one to step in and end the war?"
Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, finished by emphasizing his 35 years of experience and his mission to improve relations with Pakistan but he asks, "Who among us knows what they're doing?"
