Just like with Bush/Gore, Bush/Kerry and McCain/Obama, the presidential race between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney seems like a very stark contrast between two very different visions of government.

That's not completely true, though. And a quick look at the voting records of their two running mates, Joe Biden and Paul Ryan, illustrates that the two parties aren't always very different.

Biden, formerly a senator from Delaware, sat in Congress for 8 years with Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc. During that time, the two voted together on 52 "substantive" bills, according to the GovTrack blog. Among the big ones: the USA PATRIOT Act, two economic stimulus and recovery bills and the No Child Left Behind Act.
