We've already learned a lot about Vice-President Joe Biden's debate strategy for tonight's matchup against Paul Ryan. John Heilemann elaborated more on this tonight, reminding a Hardball panel of one of Biden's best moments from the 2008 debates, when he discussed the death of his first wife and daughter in 1972 and his experience of raising his sons afterward. "It was a very personal moment," Heilemann said, adding he expects Biden to bring up many more personal moments tonight. "Joe Biden's the only one of all four of these candidates who fluently speaks the language of populism, and it's a populist moment ... If he doesn't talk about his mother, father, children, grandchildren, and grandparents tonight, I will be shocked."
