REPORTER: "No, not judgment but details. That's something I've heard from some voters. Maybe not at your events, but details."
BIDEN: "Well, but the details are irrelevant in terms of decision making if, in fact, I forget that it was Rodriguez of — all the times I've been in and out of Afghanistan and Iraq and Bosnia and Kosovo as much as anybody, except maybe my deceased friend John McCain or maybe Lindsey Graham. And so the fact that I would forget that it was Rodriguez who was pinning — I believe this was the case —pinning a Bronze Star on a young man, it's irrelevant to the point. It's like saying I had this very bright reporter and I think her eyes were blue. What difference would it make about whether you're a great reporter if your eyes are brown? It's irrelevant and you know it."
