CNN exclusive: Ryan's debate prep as meticulous as he is

Washington (CNN) - Paul Ryan has a constant companion on the campaign trail - a weighty burden he clearly can't live without.

It's an oversized, well-worn brown briefcase that holds about 40 pounds of paperwork that he's been studying nonstop to prepare for his debate with Vice President Joe Biden.

Tune to CNN for Thursday's vice presidential debate coverage starting at 7 p.m. ET on CNN TV, CNN.com and via CNN's apps for iPhone, iPad and Android. Web users can become video editors with a new clip-and-share feature that allows them to share favorite debate moments on Facebook and Twitter.

    Joe, ask every one to show taxes for ten years.....do not PANIC. These idiots are Tax-cheats. They ban SS, introduce VOUCHERS IN MEDICARE. Watch out. Come to debate after eating dinner.

    Interesting photo. So in essence, Ryan is a trophy hunter ... in the woods and on the stump. We are all "game" to him. And according to Dana Bash, Ryan is meticulous in how he "draws voters in" for the ... well, the ... "win" - much like that deer in the photo.
