It was a showdown in the Senate! Vice President Joe Biden versus a 3-year-old kid.
"Hey William, will you hold this for me?" the Vice President asked him.
But afterwards little William Wyden didn't want to give back the goods!
That's when Biden put decades of honing his political skills to the test. He played a game of bait and switch and distracted William with a mint.
And there was another standoff in the House of Representatives as the 3-year-old daughter of incoming Illinois Representative Bobby Schilling refused to pose for a photo with her family and the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner.
